5. Rainbeau Ridge cooking classes open for registration

Better hurry—some are already closed. But a few tantalizing options are open with an impressive roster of instructors: including Gluten Free Gourmet with Eric Gabrynowicz, chef at the impossible-to-get-a-table Restaurant North, Chopped, with Lauren Braun Costello, author and food stylist, and Easiest Thanksgiving Ever, wiht Rainbeau Ridge’s own Nicki Sizemore. I’ve taken a class there with Iron Horse Grill Chef Philip McGrath; you can learn a lot because classes are small, plus, you get to eat what you cook.
