Review: CourseHorse (and Local Giveaway!)

Disclaimer: I got to attend a free class via CourseHorse in exchange for my honest review of the platform.  All opinions are my own!

I love to take classes.  Call me a nerd, but I was always excited to learn something new as a kid, and that hasn't changed!  I've taken classes for ballroom dancing, calligraphy, sewing, and cooking over the years, and I really enjoy it.  Jack of all trades, master of none, and loving it.  So when CourseHorse reached out to me to let me know they were coming to Nashville, I was definitely intrigued.

CourseHorse eliminates all of the Google searches I've done to find classes in the local area.  I really love how easy it is to find courses near me, with a ton of variety.  Since the local cooking school near me closed, I've been looking for good cooking classes in Nashville.

The Salud! Cooking School at the Whole Foods in Green Hills has a ton of options.  I chose a cookie decorating class, Designer Cookies, because it was something I've never done before.

I was also excited that the class was being taught by Chef Melinda Knight, who I know has worked as a pastry chef in some of the best restaurants in Franklin!  She used to teach at the cooking school near me, so it was good to see the high quality of teachers in the area.

I was a little nervous to start decorating, but it was a ton of fun.  The class size was perfect (12 people) and we had lots of sprinkles and frosting to get creative.  The cookies were pre-baked, but we received the recipes to take home.  I learned about making different types of frosting for flow vs. decorating.  My cookies were pretty cute, if I do say so myself!

If it wasn't for CourseHorse, I don't know if I would have checked out this cooking school, given it's a good 30-minute drive from where I live.  But now that I've done it, I'll definitely be back!

Booking through CourseHorse was super easy, and I loved being able to save Favorites and "shop" for classes.  You pay through CourseHorse, so you don't have to handle anything when you show up.  I also appreciated the reminders that they send via e-mail; I'd actually written down the wrong date in my planner for this class, but the e-mails helped me see the error and ensured I didn't miss class!

And for my Nashville area friends, you have an opportunity to try CourseHorse yourself with a giveaway!
I hope you give it a try!
