If microwaveable meals are your culinary forte, or if you’re a seasoned sous chef, chances are the Milestone Culinary Arts Center has a cooking class for you. The school offers classes for all experience levels in just about every cuisine. “I always recommend that everyone start off with our 12-week essential series,” says executive director and chef Sharon Van Meter. “It covers all the cooking basics and gives people a chance to see what types of cooking they’re interested in.” The center teaches curriculum  from the Viking Cooking School, which includes several themed classes-Date Night allows you and your honey to cook a romantic dinner for two; Girls Night Out offers gal pals a chance to cut loose over a bottle of wine and make a yummy meal in the process. Specialty classes teach how to roll sushi, decorate a cake, pair wines and cheeses, grill a mean steak, or cook a healthy food that actually tastes good. Several of the classes also are paired with dance lessons, so you can learn how to barbecue a brisket and two-step like a pro, or make tapas and pick up some salsa moves. Most classes take three to five hours and cost about $60-$130- plus you get to eat everything you cook. Cooking class schedules and prices are available online at milestoneculinary.com.
