You don’t have to be enrolled in (insert name of some academic institution) to go back to school this fall. Brooklyn’s very own Brainery and 3rd Ward host affordable classes on almost any topic all year long! Speaking of, they have some food and drink related classes coming up that we wouldn’t mind taking ourselves. In the spirit of learning, we’ve rounded up some of September’s and October’s offerings below. They may fill up quickly, so if you plan to enroll, act fast!
And, of course, there’s also the wonderful Brooklyn Kitchen, which has almost daily classes dedicated to teaching DIY food skills. In fact, there are so many that we suggest you visit their calendar to see for yourself.
