Walking through Downtown Placerville searching for a place to eat is like picking your favorite sugary concoction in a candy store. With so many options that run the gamut from burgers to fine dining, one thing’s clear: Placervillians are bona fide foodies.

Learn how to cook some fabulous fare of your own, and get your children on track early to become great chefs with a Kids Cooking and Table Setting class (ages 6-11) on March 8. Children will learn kid-friendly recipes, prepare lunch for the end of class, and learn how to properly set a table.

For the adventurous chef, try the Thai Cooking class (ages 13+) on April 5. Students will learn how to make lettuce wraps and a spicy sauce using a recipe not found in any restaurant, or even in Thailand! They’ll also prepare fresh spring rolls with a sweet peanut dipping sauce; after the chefs will be able to enjoy both of their finished products. Private group Thai cooking classes—a perfect activity to do with friends and family—are also an option.

To learn more about these classes and others, call the City of Placerville’s Community Services Department at 530-642-5232, visit, or stop by 549 Main Street in Placerville.
