With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, couples all over are looking for fun and unique things to do together. Dinner and a show is fine once in a while, but we all need some variety, right?

How about taking some cooking classes as a couple? We could all use a brush-up or some direction with our culinary skills (or lack thereof, in some cases), so we’ve gathered up a few places in the good ol’ Twin Cities that offer cooking classes.

The Kitchen Window

The first place to polish your cooking skills is The Kitchen Window in Calhoun Square, Uptown Minneapolis. Besides having a wide selection of high end cooking supplies, The Kitchen Window offers a variety of different cooking classes. The Valentines Couples classes have been extremely popular, and the weekend classes are filled up, but there is a Candy for Grownups class Saturday at 10am that may be a good option for those Valentine’s Day confections. Also, the Valentines Couples class for February 14th has spots left. The class begins at 6pm and the cost is $180 per couple.

Cooks of Crocus Hill

With locations at 50th & France in Edina and historic Grand Avenue in St. Paul, Cooks of Crocus Hill offers abundant cooking classes, some especially for Valentines. Again, the classes have been wildly popular and most are sold out, but there are waiting lists available for the Valentines Day cupcake class, the Valentines Dinner class and Men Are from Bordeaux; Women Are from Burgundy on Monday February 14th. There’s a class called Slow Food Fast to learn slow cooker techniques with a delightful menu, Sunday the 13th at 1pm at the 50th Street location, and a Libations and Sweet Treats class from 1 to 4pm Saturday the 12th, at the same location.

Even if you miss this weekend’s classes, there are still plenty of opportunities to take some classes together in the future.
