Some tips:

  • Although you'll be provided with all the tools and ingredients required for your cooking class, it's a good idea to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, as you'll be standing for some time.
  • Because you'll be cooking with and for each other, this is the perfect time to discuss each other's food preferences, allergies, and dislikes. This knowledge can help prevent any unwelcome surprises during the meal.
  • Don't rush off immediately after the park stroll. If the weather is nice, you could extend your romantic evening under the stars with a small impromptu picnic. Pack a bottle of wine and some light snacks to enjoy in the park.
