Part 3 of 5 series on hands-on cooking classes in Baltimore: Schola

A cool, bright Saturday afternoon in late October was a perfect day for the hands-on cooking class at Scola to make warming soups.  Schola, located in Mt. Vernon on Charles Street,  is a cooking school, not a restaurant,  a home for hands-on cooking classes, private parties and team building. You will have no problem finding parking on the street, though I should have just parked in the PMI lot across the street and not worry about going back out to feed the meter – after 6 p.m. you don’t have to pay the meter. 

Schola is on the first floor on a townhouse, with daylight pouring in from the street front windows that afternoon it was bright and shiny. Everything in its place in their small space - well stocked shelves, orderly and well thought out.  Down the center of the room were tables and stools.

Hot new Happiest Little Baker creating memories for children and adults alike

Who can’t recall those moments in the kitchen with your mom, dad, meemaw or bubbie – one-on-one, laughing and smiling? 

Loving this new company called Happiest Little Baker; I call it memories in a box.  The gist is a subscription, though you can buy just one, pre-measured baking kits that are geared to children baking with an adult. Happiest Little Baker’s founder, Lindsey Maurath wanted to translate her happy memories of baking with her mother and grandmother into fond memories for others.

Part 2 of 5 series on top hands-on cooking classes - Chef Egg

On my continuing quest to take and share my experiences at five hands-on cooking classes in Baltimore, my second stop was with the roving cooking instructor Chef Egg (Erik Berlin). I’ve taken his class twice, the last being held in the Blue Moon Too location in Federal Hill.  Chef Egg is a culinary instructor with Whole Foods in the Washington, DC area, a culinary instructor/television host along with his monthly hands-on class in Baltimore. You need to be on his mailing list to know about the classes. You can click the sign-up tag on his Facebook page or request to be put on his email list at his Chef Egg page.

He has a cooking class this Thursday evening, autumn brunch – if interested reach out, it might not be sold out.  Tickets available:
