Date Idea: Cooking Class
Price: Starting a $49 per person depending on the school
One can either spend their money going out to a restaurant to have their meals, or you can make your meals from home. The problem with the latter is if you don't know how to cook, it can make for a bad experience...or sometimes a visit from the fire department. A solution? Cooking school!
There are several places in Vancouver where you and your date can sign up to take cooking classes. Often these classes are themed. So depending on when you take the class, you may learn to cook one genre of food on one day, and another genre on another. The price of the class not only teaches you how to make it, but includes the cost of the food for that class.
Make sure to register for your class early as space in these classes are limited and often sell out.
