Eatz LA "Rock the Casbah" Cooking Class (Los Angeles, CA)

The best cooking classes you'll ever take.

Every cooking class I've taken here has been really good. Unlike some other places, here you actually get to cook everything yourself. Here is the menu for this class:

Tabbouleh Salad - came out amazing
Toasted Pita Triangles - perfect for dipping into the Baba Ghanoush and Hummus we made
Baba Ghanoush - it was my first time having it and wow it was good
Lemon-Garlic Hummus - I didn't like the lemony taste too much, but it was still good hummus
Apricot-Mint Couscous - The couscous was good, but I didn't like the apricot and mint flavor in it.
Pan-Fried Lamb Chops with Harissa sauce - yum
Grilled plums (used bananas instead)  with Cinnamon Pecan Yogurt Sauce - Plums weren't in season, so we used bananas instead. Then one of the other students asked about flambeing so we learned how to do that. They poured rum (I think) into the pan and then we lit it on fire. It was awesome!

There are a lot of little cooking secrets that are taught at these classes that make them just that much better. I'm currently taking a condensed cooking course here that is six weeks long (one night a week for four hours). So far it's been great!
