Cooking classes in Rockland County?

Wondering if anyone knows of any held in restaurants, or even private cooks who give lessons.

    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."

      Simple Earth Cuisine, Personal Chef Service will come to your home and conduct cooking classes for either one person or up to 8 people. Lisa, the chef and owner, will also take you to the store to teach you how to shop for your produce and will really give insite to any food allergy you may have been diagnosed with. http://www.SimpleEarthCuisine.com

          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.

              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.
