If you're tempted to improve your cooking skills, there's quite a few great learning opportunities within a short drive of Sur512 Apartments.
Natural Epicurean (1700 South Lamar Blvd.) This is a full-fledged culinary academy, but they also offer one-time cooking courses to the general public. You'll work in teams at stations to prepare two or three dishes for a full meal, which everyone gets to enjoy upon completion. Class themes are usually either seasonal or focus on one particular regional cuisine.
Make It Sweet (9070 Research Blvd) As the name indicates, you can bolster your goodie-making skills at this bakery. Some examples of classes they hold include gingerbread house decoration, cake balls, baked donuts, macarons and whoopie pies. There's a really huge range of possibilities, with at least one class being held almost every day. Their website lists the full schedule for the coming three months or so.
Gateway Guesthouse (1001 East Riverside Dr.) It's not uncommon now for bed and breakfasts to have a sideline of holding cooking classes, and Gateway Guesthouse has followed in this trend. Regularly scheduled classes include French and Greek cuisine, knife skills and meat grilling. It's also possible to design your own class for yourself and a small group.
Central Market Cooking School (4001 North Lamar) This popular grocery chain also holds periodic cooking classes at the North Lamar location. Classes usually focus on one specific dish, skill or holiday meal. Check their website to see a full list of scheduled classes for the next several months.
