Foodies know that Now We're Cooking is the place to go for kitchen gadgets and specialty items in the far North East Heights. What they may not be aware of is that NWC also hosts cooking demonstrations in the back of the store for $30 a pop. Many of the classes are taught by guest chefs from celebrated local restaurants like Seasons, Scalo and Jennifer James. So if you've ever wondered how your favorite place makes the soup so delightfully smooth, NWC is a great opportunity to find out first hand. They even offer hands-on cooking classes for kids in the summer (which should keep them occupied for at least a few hours). Be sure to ask about store discounts for class participants.
