This post is written by Susie Cork, General Manager of Shaw’s Restaurant & Inn in Lancaster. You can follow Shaw's on Twitter @ShawsRestaurant. This week, we'll have posts from members of Dine Originals Columbus, which is celebrating it's 10th anniversary.

Have you ever thought about taking a cooking class? We are offering a series of “shorties,” abbreviated classes with appetizer-size portions, presented in demonstration style, so you can sit back and enjoy. One of the common threads that runs through the feedback we receive is, “I needed some new ideas and this was the perfect way to add a few recipes to my repertoire which had gotten sort of stale.” Typed recipes are provided, glasses of wine are offered for purchase, and a welcoming sense of camaraderie is guaranteed. I am thinking of the classes as a series of anniversary celebrations for Dine Originals Columbus…isn’t that what you would want for a milestone accomplishment? Your good friends gathering around to enjoy interesting food and wonderful wine?
