Some couples like a casual dinner, others like an activity. If you’re in the latter group, why not choose a cooking class before or on Valentine’s Day? If you choose before, you can cook a dinner at home with your sweetheart. Hipcooks offers hands-on cooking classes for first-timers and seasoned cooks alike. Measuring implements are banned, tasting is encouraged, and your inner chef is invited to play. What’s even cooler is that every class ends with a dinner party!
