Eatz offers one of the best cooking classes in LA. It's that kind of place where as soon as you walk in, you get a small bite to wake up your appetite. The class is very educational. However, it's a lot of fun with unlimited wine and cocktails, plus a 4-5 course meal throughout your 3-hour program. It's a fantastic way to up your cooking game while having a great time.

Pro Tip: "Whiskey a Go Go" is the most popular class. Book all classes in advance.
Location & Hours
We booked the entire class, 16 of us this week. The pop-up place was a disaster, we were cramped in a super small room at the back of an art gallery storeroom, cooking with one camping stove per couple, (not even one extra for the teacher) on top of a piece of plywood with a black cover. The space had a small window AC unit and 2 floor fans, granted it was a hot day, but the breakers keep tripping and there was no air circulation at times (remember, 8 stoves cooking). It was so hot (+120F) that we had to go outside to cool off while cooking. Eating dinner was on benches and high chairs (no tables) at the front of the art gallery, very unconfortable. The teacher was "okay" following up the recipe on her phone at times. Not what we expected, when we booked the entire class for a team-building event.
My hubby and I signed up for a cooking class at Eatz and it was a very small space to cook. We had one camping stove for both of us. All the couples had the same small space however if you signed up solo you got the same space and the same amount of ingredients so it felt like we should have signed up separate for two spots and had more space and food to cook with and learn individually versus splitting the cooking in a very tight spot. We did love our chef that taught us that day. If you don’t drink like we do, there isn’t a substitute they provide that is non alcoholic and I feel like there should be other than water. It was also super hot in the space and fans would have been great there. All in all, I did like what we made but would not go again for the price. Two people who sign up together get the same space and ingredient amount as someone who signs up solo. Doesn’t seem too fair. It was fairly pricey. Knives were super dull and felt a little low budget. There were lots of corners cut like no to go containers for food you made. Not enough vegetarian swap Outs. Elbows bumping our neighbors because they didn’t have enough table space.
Loved the class my wife and I took in celebration of my birthday. Our instructor, Andra was amazing. She was so fun and super informative. This was my first time flambé-ing anything and it was a ton of fun! We took the whiskey a gogo class and all of the food was delicious. We made friends and brought food home with us. It was a wonderful experience!
I’ve taken several classes at eatz, including a six week chef series. I’d recommend it for a way to connect with fun people or maybe even take a date. Typically in a class there is a cocktail of choice that flows throughout the class and if you get a good mix of people it’s a blast! And then of course there is the cooking of multiple dishes and tons of food to take home. The teachers I have had, Shari and owner Niki are high energy and know their stuff. I’ve made some really awesome stuff, including the scallops that I bring out when I want to impress a guest. I always credit the six week class with giving me the skills to feel like a relatively confident chef in the kitchen! Highly recommend. And the, The price is worth it for the amount of food, drink and learning you get.
