D.C./Baltimore "food excursion" gift ideas?

kathryneganbrown | Aug 22, 201709:15 AM     3

Hello, all! I previously posted about finding ideas for a truffle-related birthday excursion gift for my husband, but that has been a bust (the only truffiere in the area won't do tours). I'd love ideas for some kind of foodie "excursion" in the area--he'll be able to take off a workday (so we'll have built-in child care), and we're willing to drive 60-90 minutes from Reston, VA. We eat everything except beef and pork. While he especially loves Thai, Indian, and Greek food, I think he'd be interested in ANY kind of cooking lesson/observe a great chef in action/unique "food experience." I'm not looking for a generic cooking school-type lesson. I don't know where to start--should I call restaurants we like or have been wanting to try and see if they'd be willing to do something special? I have no idea what would be reasonable to ask. He likes to learn about process (making homemade cheese and yogurt, figuring out how to replicate Bangkok Golden's crispy rice salad, etc.). I'm stumped! Thanks so much in advance!
