This New Mission Cooking School Is Just What Your Resolutions Ordered
So, your New Year’s resolution is to cook more meals at home. To cut down on take-out. To impress dates with your culinary prowess and wine pairing knowledge.
Just one problem:
You don’t know how to cook.
To the rescue: The Civic Kitchen, an attractive new recreational cooking school and pop-up venue in the Mission that’s taking reservations now for classes starting this Saturday. Take a look around.
After signing up for a class, you and your date (preferably one with similar resolutions) will enter the space, put on some aprons and gather around the large marble-topped counter in the center of the kitchen.
If you opted for a one-off, longer class like the Indian Street Food instructional, you’ll learn how to make things like cilantro chutney and paneer tikka before feasting upon your creations at a communal table and following them with a glass of wine or Kingfisher lager. If you opted for a series like “Learn to Cook” or “Learn to Bake,” you’ll… well, do that. Don’t worry, those come with beer and wine, too.
Plus, the whole space can be used as a pop-up venue for local chefs, so look for those to start in the near future. In the meantime, hit up their community open house on the 21stfor demos and passed apps.
