Date Night, it’s almost a bad word in our home. That may be because we’ve been together for such a long time. Or, maybe we are just boring? If you’ve been dating or married for any length of time, date night is probably the same ole, same ole. Maybe you switch it up and go to dinner and a movie one week and then the next time you go to dinner and then shopping. Depending on where you live, it can be difficult to come up with fresh ideas on how to have an enjoyable night out with your significant other. So, what do you do?

A few years ago, my husband asked for ONE Christmas present. He wanted to attend grilling classes. Now, let me be clear … the man can cook, the man can grill … he can even bake. What he wanted to do was hone his skill because he never felt like the steaks that he grilled were perfect.

Guys, I spent weeks searching for grilling classes. We were located on the outskirts of Cincinnati, a larger major city, and I couldn’t find anything. After weeks turned into a month, I started calling around to different restaurants asking if they offered any type of one-on-one classes. Nada, nothing, ZILCH. A couple told me it was a great idea; I may have even tried to bribe them to use my husband as a test subject. Alas, I had failed.

The problem with this? I DO NOT FAIL. So, I called in an expert a.k.a. my little sister. We put our heads together, did some research, and found … Sur la Table!

With a focus on creating happiness through making and sharing good food, Sur la Table became our go to get my husband’s gift! Sur la Table has a little something for everyone, including classes that allow you bring the grill indoors with cast iron and nonstick grill pans. I could tell you the long, drawn-out tale of Erik’s adventure in cooking but I will suffice it to say, HE LOVED IT!! After attending a cooking class at Sur la Table, Erik came home with confidence, great tips, a new found excitement for cooking, and some fun recipes. To date, the man can cook/grill a steak that rivals any I’ve had in any fancy restaurant.

So where am I going with this? SIGN UP FOR A COOKING CLASS AT SUR LA TABLE!! They offer cooking classes for singles or couples and fun will be had by all. Did I mention they currently have a promotion running?
