You’ve done great work this January. You’ve tried new workouts, resisted bread baskets, and possibly did it all completely sober. You deserve a treat, and a cool local class that will teach you to create that treat. Here are a few worth reincorporating sugar into your diet for.
Macaron Making at Savor Patisserie | Various Dates
Sure, you could try to teach yourself how to make macarons, or you could book a class at Savor Patisserie where they’ll have all the equipment, ingredients, and knowledge of how to craft the tricky little French cookies ready to go. We choose the latter.
Cookies & Calligraphy | February 11, 1-3:30pm
If you’ve yet to discover the custom cake queen that is Samantha Cade, please pay a visit to her Instagram (be prepared to spend some time there).

Chocolate Lovers Unite at the Arboretum’s A Tasteful Place | February 11, 1-3pm

Valentine Date Night in Paris at Garnish Kitchen | February 14
Tragically, the $150 class fee does not include an actual trip to Paris, but it does grant you entrance to an evening that begins with a Veuve Clicquot toast and ends with blowtorching a crème brûlée.
The Cookery | Various Dates
Here’s the thing, pretty much all of these classes are waitlist-only right now. We’re so sorry. (There are some seats for Un “Pho” Gettable left though, if that piques your interest!) But when there are Mardis Gras classes, sushi classes, Barcelona- and Paris-themed classes, and something called “An Elegant Winter Dinner” where you learn how to make a “Local Wild Honey Goat Cheese Crostini,” those are worth knowing about a waitlist for!
