48. Gourmet Cooking at Sur La Table: $50+

There is something truly impressive about someone who can cook a really delicious gourmet meal. This skill may not help you get a job, unless you work in the food industry. But it could seriously give you brownie points in your personal life, and it may even be a great idea for a date night. Sur La Table is a kitchen supply store, but they have a fully stocked professional kitchen. They have cooking classes that start at $50, and go up well over $100, depending on what you are cooking. The price includes the cost of the food, and they sometimes allow you to keep free kitchen products, as well.
