  1. Yes Marcello of Marcello's restaurant in Suffern holds cooking classes.

    1. Yup, got that one. Thanks! Others are Lanterna Tuscan Bistro in Nyack and Kitch n' Kaffe in Mahopac, but alas, no classes in the summer.

      1. I guess you know about the classes held at MacMenamin's Grill in New Rochelle?

        1. go to http://www.foodandstyle.com/classes.htm
          they are classes hosted by Viviane Banquet Farre in her home.
          She also does cooking demos at Williams Sonoma in Montvale and sometime at the Piermont Farmer's Market.

          1. There is a private chef and private caterer in Conges who offers cooking classes for children and adults. At Your Service NY http://www.hvwebtv.com/atyourservice1...

            1. Yea, Ive been to the cooking classes at Marcellos.. it was really fun! go to MarcellosGroup.com, you can see the menu there

              1. If you really want a great experience, consider taking a short trip -- less than 1 1/2 hour drive from anywhere in Rockland County -- to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. Information on programs for "enthusiasts" (i.e., not matriculated students or culinary professionals) is at http://www.ciachef.edu/enthusiasts/pr.... Scroll down to "Hyde Park, NY Campus Offerings" and select either "Boot Camp Programs" or "Weekends at the CIA."
