As mentioned before, my husband and I love spending our date night’s at one of the Chopping Block’s couples themed cooking classes. It’s hands-on, a perfect opportunity to learn and new skill, it’s also a great time to spend with other couples, indulging in some wonderful food.
Please check out some of the classes offered this month:
