Who wouldn’t want to learn how to cook from a husband-wife chef team who have worked at the likes of Georges Blanc in France, and Charlie Trotter’s and Everest, both in Chicago?

You can, now that Chefs Christopher and Veronica Laramie of eVe in Berkeley have started offering once-a-month cooking classes at their intimate 28-seat restaurant. Likewise, their classes will be equally personalized in that each is limited to only 10 students.

You have the choice of meeting at the restaurant at 11 a.m. or meeting the two chefs at 10 a.m. at the Berkeley Farmers Market to help choose produce for that day’s class. Then, you’ll roll up your sleeves to get cooking in this hands-on class that lasts until 2:30 p.m. After all the cooking is done, you’ll sit down with the Laramies to enjoy a cozy lunch featuring the dishes you and your classmates have made.

Each class will feature a different theme. The price is $75 per person per class. Here is the schedule so far:

* Sat., Jan. 29: “From the Winter Garden”

* Sat., Feb. 26: “Couples in the Kitchen”

* Sat. April 2: “Peru Meets the Bay Area”

To reserve a spot, call (510) 868-0735.

    Looks like a great idea, I think this would be great for my hubby’s birthday!

    What fun! I’d love the couples class-any opportunity to get Mr NQN to cook is good as far as I’m concerned! :D

  8. 8

    I’m very intrigued by Peru meets the Bay Area, this all sounds fantastic and I’d have had no idea without your expert guidance. Phew!

    “Peru meets the Bay Area” = possibly all I need to eat for the rest of my life. It’s a shame that I’ll just miss this, visiting the Bay Area only the very next week! I had no idea about this restaurant before now and it sounds interesting. Aside from the popcorn in the salad, which seems a little uncalled for.
