My husband and I went on the most different and exciting of date night’s a week ago as we tried out a cooking class at Sur-La-Table with chef Tom Deni in Boca Raton. The title of the class was Sur-La-Table’s Date Night: Sensational Summer Cooking and it is sure one of the most memorable date night’s we’ve had to date. The class was fun, the staff was knowledgable and friendly and the entire presentation was easy to understand no matter what your stance is in the world of culinary, be it novice or expert. Now a super cool tie-bit to know in advance is that you can take your own wine bottle and opener to pair with your meal and wine glasses are provided for use during class, free of charge and of any corking fees. Nice perk right? 

Sur-La-Table and all employes present whom made this night so special for us far exceeded our expectations. Chef Tom Deni is a thorough, humorous, and knowledgable chef and instructor. We highly recommend it to anyone and everyone and we also hope to do a date night cooking class every season. It is amazing how many new things I learned in one night. That’s how I want to keep it though, consistently learning and drawing from different sources because I never want to get too comfortable or limit myself with what I know currently. These meals were easy to recreate at home and were consistent with what we learned and how they came out in class. Get on it and book your date night with your heart-throb, it’s an experience you’ll surely never forget.

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!

    Hi Teresa! I’m in the same boat as Margaret! Where is the cider bourbon recipe? I don’t see it, either. Can’t wait to try!
