Looking to take cooking classes--either a series or individually. Healthy and/or vegetarian cooking preferred. Where to go?

Thanks!

      There is also a wide variety of classes - both series and one-shot deals - at the New School. I took a general cooking series there and really enjoyed it.

        I've never been but they have lots of vegetarian/healthy classes at The Natural Gourmet School

          There's always the French Culinary Institute. They have series and singles. I'm signed up for the Basic Techniques class starting on Jan 15th.

          I heard good things about ICE but didn't see a series that fit me but maybe it is because their web site is awful. They should fix that.

            ICE's website is terrible, but see if you can search by teacher. If so, look for Daniel Rosati. I'm pretty sure he's doing a Vegetarian Italian this season. I'd happily take any class with him.

              +1 on ICE. Last year, I did the 5 week Fine Cooking I and really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to taking the next level in the series.

              Do you prefer vegan and vegetarian cooking? This article may be useful http://cookingclassesnycguide.com/veg...

                If you're looking for classes geared toward healthy and/or vegetarian, I'd suggest the Natural Gourmet Cookery School. All their classes fall into those categories.

                  For a class that is just a night or two you might want to look into Brooklyn Kitchen. It's not in Manhattan but off the second L subway stop in Brooklyn (ten minutes from union square) they have lots of cool/quirky classes, some go beyond basic cooking (think canning, butchering, cheese making, street foods, tangine cooking, etc).
