Class Suggestions at ICE

anna banana Aug 29, 2007 09:18 AM

My first choice, a cooking class for singles was booked up on the Female side (surprise, surprise) So I'm looking for suggestions of fun classes to take at ICE, My skills are a bit beyond what the Cooking 101 course entails, but I'm no chef by any stretch.
Have any of you taken classes at ICE, and if so, which ones are good or musts to avoid?

    I took an Indian cooking class and loved it...not quite sure the exact name, though.

      I took Myra Kornfield's semi-vegetarian Thai class. Highly recommended!

          I took an Egyptian class cause my Mom came in to town last minute and we wanted to go to a cooking class. And then the next time, I took the breakfast class. Both of the instructors were fantastic. I loooved the breakfast class.

            Any class taught by Jordy Lavenderos. I took Mexican Party course with really elaborate dishes. He used to own Secretes in EV. He also teaches tapas and thai.

                Are Classes at ICE good to bring a friend for her birthday? If so, what are good classes for friends to attend together (we are by no means experts...)

                  Sure! My friend and I attended an intro-Indian cooking class and we had a blast together.

                  I took a class called Shrimply Scrumptious, it was all sorts of different dishes with shrimp, lots and lots of really tasty recipes. More importantly thought, the instructor's name was vicky capruzzi, she was insanely amazing and I highly suggest that whatever you do you sign up for one of her classes.
