A food or drink class is a memorable way to congratulate the pair on getting hitched — you really can't lose if you take the time to pick the class based on their culinary interests. Do they love creating cocktails for friends at home? Sign them up for a mixology class. Know folks that live for artisanal cheese? A cheese-of-the-month membership could be just the thing for them.
