I've taken many cooking classes in New England (Healthy Living in Burlington, Stonewall Kitchen in Maine, etc.) and my experiences at Mary's have easily been the best... I've been back 4 times and plan to keep on returning.
The classes are usually around 10-14 people and they make sure everyone gets to take part... or, if you just want to watch, you can do that too! This is what makes the classes so great, the chef and his helpers are very friendly and laid back and really seem to enjoy sharing their knowledge of cooking and their local farm to table values. Questions are encouraged.
If you go in the late spring or summer, your class will most likely include a tour of their wonderful gardens. They grow most all of their own herbs, greens, and veggies used in their restaurant, and the pride in their product shows.
The classes are 3 and a half hours long and include a great meal of the things you've created served with wine! (and printouts of the recipes you made, usually at least 3 dishes and a dessert) Classes run from 11:30 to 3:00. The cost is $75 per person. Two students booking the same cooking class at the same time: $140.
