The perfect gift for the mum with a thirst to keep on learning.  A Gift Certificate to The James Street Cooking School is the perfect gift – redeemable at any time so she can take her pick from the wonderful selection of classes that are available.  Perhaps an introduction to Cupcakes class could do the trick?  Or maybe a Quick and Easy Asian cooking class is more her speed?  Whatever cuisine tickles her fancy, James Street Cooking School will be able to accommodate.  Pick up a gift certificate for yourself while you’re at it, so you and mum can make a night of it.  The best benefit?  After she’s taken the class, you can taste test what she’s learned over family dinner!
