We can’t always go out to eat, so there is never a bad time to learn how to cook a great meal in your own kitchen. And with holiday parties on the horizon, what better way to wow your guests than with a delicious dinner a North Fork chef taught you how to cook?

Just in time for prime dinner party season, two local restaurants are opening up their kitchens for holiday cooking classes that are just as much fun as they are informative.

The schedules are as follows:

Jedediah Hawkins Inn

Learn the proper way to cook a bird and all the sides with chefs Craig Attwood and Kyle Strong Romeo. Classes will be held on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24 and the cost is $50. Book a room at the inn for either night and the cooking class is free. Call (631) 722-2900 for more info.

Jedediah Hawkins Inn is located at 400 South Jamesport Ave. in Jamesport

Joe’s Garage and Grill

Learn to cook a decadent holiday meal with chef Brian Burner at Joe’s Garage and Grill in Riverhead on Dec. 4.

The two-hour class begins at 7 p.m. and includes a three-course tasting, beer and wine pairing and a take-home recipe book.

The cost is $75 per person or $125 for a pair of tickets.

Call 631-591-3330 to reserve a spot.

Joe’s Garage and Grill is located at 40 Peconic Ave. in Riverhead
