  • Cooper’s Landing Inn & Traveler’s Tavern is perfectly situated along the lake in Clarksville. Make a weekend out of this class when you stay two nights. Included is a five-course chef’s tasting dinner and wine pairing, cheese reception, breakfast, four hours of classes, elegant lunch, afternoon tea, two of your very own Cooper’s Landing aprons, and a binder of recipes. Package offered October 23-25 for $700, or book a class only on August 22 for $65/person.
  • Mise en Place in Richmond is a team building cooking school. You’re a team, right? There just so happens to be “Couples Who Cook” classes offered monthly. Upcoming: August 18 and September 9. The cost is $120/couple.
