Get into the loving mood while learning to create your own Valentine’s menu

Learn and love together with a food and wine class this Valentine’s Day

This year, Seattle couples can try something a little different from the standard restaurant dinner for Valentine’s day. You can void those restaurant crowds and treat your honey to a truly unique experience! We have classes for every couple’s liking. Wine tasting or Asian-inspired cooking or gourmet dining classes are just a few options we have during this romantic season.

Does the best bubbly get you and your Valentine in the mood for love? Spend an evening sipping Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and other sparkling wines from around the world while learning how they are made. How do they get those bubbles in the wine?! Seattle Wine School has all of the best bubbly and background information, which you can enjoy in this two hour class.

Register here to enjoy two hours of bubbly tastings with your honey.

Maybe a big bowl of Asian-inspired soup is what warms the cockles of your hearts! Prune Kitchen Seattle is offering a class for learning to make luscious Japanese home-style noodles, in this case chicken and vegetable Udon and bean thread noodle salad. This is all taught by chef instructor Fumiko who also teaches at Nikkei Horizons. This class is open to those 14 and up, in case your Valentine is a beloved kid in your life!

Check out this class for you and your Valentine.

Another delicious option is to weave some Mardi Gras festivities into Your Valentine’s Day celebrations. Sizzleworks Cooking School is holding A Cajun Affair for Mardi Gras, hosted by Chef Pam as she showcases her Louisiana roots. The menu includes fried pickles, southern greens, jambalaya, bananas foster, and armadillo eggs for your intrepid Valentine.

Try this class to combine the warmth of Valentine’s and the spice of Mardi Gras!

If you want to go fully decadent and spoil your Valentine, how about a 6-course gourmet dinner in a cooking party format? Blue Ribbon Cooking is holding a Valentine’s Day Special Event with Northwest Wines and Microbrews. It’s a saucy and succulent event for couples, including a full evening preparing a truly memorable meal and beverages that you will enjoy in a wonderful romantic setting.

Spoil your love with this gourmet experience.

Chef Shop is also holding a Valentine’s Day special event – Chef Karen Binkhorst is making some of her favorite recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi’s famous cookbook, ‘Jerusalem’. Filled with unusual and exotic ingredients from a melting pot of food cultures and cooking traditions, this evening event is one you and your Valentine will not soon forget!

Incorporate the exotic into your Valentine’s celebrations.
