School is back in session, so why not take a class and jump start your learning?  These classes are more mouth-watering than mind-numbing.  Picking up new skills is always a good idea, especially if those skills can feed you!  Learn how to chop, flambe, grille and season at some of our favorite cooking classes in New York City.
