Several other cooking schools in Baltimore offer classes on a similar range of cuisines. The Chef Like Me Collective ( 492-9538, cheflikemecollective.com), which also has catering and personal chef services, holds classes in Little Italy that cover kitchen basics as well as classes covering specific cuisines including Cajun/Creole, French, Italian, Spanish, and Mexican. (Von Lange said the regional classes at Schola are “very popular.”) The Baltimore Chef Shop in Hampden (807 W. 36th St.,  869-5121, baltimorechefshop.com), which, like Schola, opened last year, teaches classes on different cuisines, as well as various brunch classes, baking classes, canning classes, and more. If you’re willing to take a road trip out of the city, you can learn about Nigerian and West African cuisines in the classes at Calbra Classics (758 S. Arbory Lane, Laurel,  460-4640, calbraclassics.com). And it’s not just dedicated cooking schools that offer classes: Pierpoint Restaurant (page 52) has been hosting a wide variety of cooking classes for years, and Pellegrino still holds cooking classes at Waterfront Kitchen. If there’s a kitchen technique or a particular cuisine you want to learn, chances are, there’s a class somewhere in Baltimore for it.
