I am a college student and looking to get my girlfriend some European cooking classes as a gift. I am looking for something cheap in Boston, or Northwest of the city. Any suggestions?

What do you mean, when you say European cooking classes? Europe is ahuge area with many different countries and each has their ownspecialties. There are plenty of cooking programs on TV - and zillionsof cookbooks published. Maybe you can start by giving her a cookbookfrom the area, you are thinking of. Good luck!

Ive been there done that, i dont really care what class. And a lot of cooking classes/books now are "mediterranean" not Italian, or Spanish or German. I am just looking for someting simple to start off with, and w can build from there.

Hey laryan, didn't expect this kind of comment from you. Lots of peoplelike to explore culinary options. Hot dogs, hamburgers, steaks, greasyfrench fries and onion rings are not always an option for many people(including myself).
Would love to know, what you consider American Cooking. Applepie? Tome, there just isn't any "American Cooking", since we are living in amelting pot and our cooking is coming from everywhere else. Justsaying!

i'm just saying "european cooking" isnt the only option available here. in addition to "american cooking (meat & vegtables) there is also asian and middle eastern cooking available too...and the OP could consider these options as well...

That's exactly why I asked him/her, "What do you mean, European cooking?" There is just not such thing.

and you can't do your own cooking, why? (both me and my husband cook)

You and your husband must be perfect together. I actually do cook, and have taken classes across the world. I enjoy cooking, and she wants to learn to cook well. She actually mentioned this, and I am thinking ahead for her birthday in a few months.
