I will be in Boston from April 9 -14, 2013. My husband will be at a conference during the days and I am looking to take cooking classes or attend cooking demonstrations. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.

It may be too soon to schedule something in April, but here are a few options I know of that have good reputations:

Boston Center for Adult Education

Cambridge Center for Adult Education

Cambridge School of Culinary Arts

Stir Boston -- a demonstration kitchen by local chef Barbara Lynch

Elephant Walk -- French-Cambodian restaurant that hosts classes

Oleana -- Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant that hosts classes

I'm including options in nearby Cambridge, it's easily accessible by subway or taxi.

I've taken some classes at Cambridge School for Culinary Arts. True culinary school with good equipment and professional instructors. Cambridge Center (and I presume Boston Center) are more diverse and instructors less apt to be professional teachers.
