For some folks the rush to register for classes is just like being back in college, plotting out your schedule, hoping you’ll get in to the class you want before it sells out! Pretty amazing that a grocery store’s cooking classes can evoke that can of excitement, but Dorothy Lane Market’s School of Cooking is indeed a unique place. Offering over 60 classes for the winter/spring session, including hands on classes with an average class size of 12 and demonstration classes for up to 30 at at time, DLM’s classses sell out more often than not. The classes range from basic knife skills to couple’s classes that pair food and wine.
According to Sandy Martz, the Director of the Cooking School, students bond with certain instructors and will over time take all the classes he/she offers. Sandy works diligently at recruiting Chefs, cookbook authors and Foodies from all over the country to continuously offer different courses throughout the year. In the summer, the focus is on children’s cooking camps.
DLM Corporate Chef Carrie Walters holds the distinction for the class that sells out the quickest and that’s the Girls’s Night Out. So this term- they are offering two, one in Feb and one in May, but you better sign up quickly if you want to experience the fun!
