Quality Cooking Classes

  • 2

Contrary to what I'd expect, my interests in food seem to be drifting to my own kitchen more often lately.
i'm thinking it might be fun to take a cooking class in the new year, to learn some "official" technique but also just to explore a bit.

since there seem to be many places to take classes in the city, anyone have recommendations or complaints about particular programs?

(i'm not looking to go to full-on culinary school or anything like that. just a fun evening/weekend class for a couple of months or whatnot.)

  1. Institute of Culinary Education has a huge selection of classes in their recreational division. Also New School has some continuing ed type classes.

      I second ICE. My fiancee and I have taken several classes there. Huge selection from basics to advanced stuff and specific cuisines.
