Jw marriottI’m so over cooking. Thanks to years of monotonous meal making, I have about as much enthusiasm for food prep as I do for a trip to the dentist (no offence Dr. Montijo).

Sadly, my dinner duties aren’t going anywhere any time soon, so this year I’ve added “get excited about cooking again” to my list of new year’s resolutions. And I’m going to drag my hubby along for the ride and make revamping our cuisine part of our weekly date night adventures.

My very first foodie facelift will take place at the JW Marriott, which just launched a new cooking school series. Perfect timing!

Budding gourmands can dive into pasta making lessons, experience romantic Valentine’s feasts, dig their hands into the hotel’s onsite vegetable garden, and learn how to brew their own beer.

Classes take place in either PRIMO or Citron, both at the JW Marriott, and range from $45 to $70 per person.
