Suggestions for Birthday Gift- Possible cooking class?

silverlining | Aug 19, 2010 11:44 AM

So I've found a great guy who has a 29th birthday coming up tomorrow (yes tomorrow)! He happens to be french and likes to cook simple stuff from natural/healthy ingredients. We love to cook and eat all sorts of stuff together and I wanted to do something special for his birthday.

Initially I was going to take him to a whole foods cooking class, but he kinda found out about the idea and I wanted to be a little more tricky. I contacted the head cheff of a restaurant on the east side of Austin that we have gone to, and she said she would do a private cooking lesson at her place for $400.00. Although it sounds like an ok price, my budget is really $250.

Does anyone know of another great cook/cheff who could do something like this but more affordable- I do have my own house/kitchen with moderate cooking supplies? Or, does anyone have any other cool food-related birthday ideas? I am open to many things!
