Alix Gardner has been saving marriages for 20 years. This is where to go when 'can't cook, won't cook' becomes an act of aggression rather than an endearing failing. Marian Finucane, Lara Jorgensen and many local madams have done the 10 week course. With a maximum of eight people per class, you get to take home the two dishes you create. Choose from Intermediate 1 (Mondays, 6.30-9pm. Sample dishes: sole with prawns and mushrooms, beef Bourguinion, chocolate mousse Basque) and Around the World (Tuesdays, 6.30-9pm. Sample dishes: roasted red peppers Piedmont, lamb and cumin casserole, Thai sweet and sour vegetables). If - after all that - you still can't boil an egg, don't despair. Alix caters too.
