Need a little help in the kitchen? Don't worry if you lack basic cooking skills, let alone techniques for creating Michelin Star dishes like the pros. North Fulton cooking classes can help you discover how to whip together recipes that you never knew you could make -- and that you and your family will devour!

Local Chef Julia LeRoy will lead this hands on class designed to lower your anxiety level about cooking gluten free. You’ll spend some time with a few GF flours and soon you’ll see that cooking gluten free is not as hard as you think. After all, if there’s such a thing as GF grilled cheese sandwich or jambalaya made with GF roux, then maybe gluten free cooking isn’t so scary after all.
Chinese Takeout. 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. March 25. $69 per person. Sur la table, North Point Mall, 1000 North Point Circle, Suite 1082, Alpharetta. ww.surlatable.com.
You’ll cook with a wok and make dumplings with your own two hands in this hands on class. Your knife skills will also be upgraded. When it’s all said and done you’ll be tasting pork and chive dumplings, ginger chicken and scallion lo mein and Chinese broccoli with kung pao shrimp.

With the coming of spring comes fruits and berries. Join Salud! instructors at Whole Foods Market as they show you both traditional southern and more modern recipes. While the menu is mostly sweet: Peach Ginger Crisp, Deep Dish Spring Berry Pie and Banana Bread Cobbler, a good old savory Chicken Pot Pie will balance things out.

The folks at Sur la table believe that great cooking is more about techniques than fabulous recipes.

The class features three soufflés, one savory and two sweet.
