Last week, I went to a cooking lesson at Delish! I’m not much of a cook—but I am a big eater, so the thought of attending a class and watching someone else cook, while I reap the benefits sounded most appealing to me.

The cooking lesson is taught in a casual, class-type setting, with four dishes being prepared. Classes are offered Tuesday-Friday with different themes, ranging from “Cooking with Beer” to “Sushi & Summer Rolls.” Those attending are offered the opportunity to purchase wine or beer while they relax and learn how to cook interesting dishes. Questions are welcomed and the recipes are prepared step-by-step in front of you before a generous sample is extended to each “student.”

The class I attended was “The New Vegetarian Cuisine” that I brought my boyfriend to. There was a mixed crowd—several women were on a “Girls Night” while several other younger couples like us were also present. The classroom/kitchen has seating for approximately 20, making it an enjoyable, intimate experience.

The chefs prepared complex dishes such as Artichoke, Asparagus, & Mushroom Quinoa Risotto that were interesting to see prepared and even better to taste.

Attending a cooking lesson at Delish! was one of the more off-beat things that I have done recently in Buffalo, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone—especially if like me, you want the experience of learning how to cook a meal, without ever leaving your seat.
