      The Ballantyne Hotel has a "cooking school" and they hold a class about once a month. November is root vegetables. Here is a link: http://www.theballantynehotel.com/Nov...

        I've looked into Johnson and Wales. The prices are pretty steep, but the reputation is solid. Is there a Williams Sonoma there they may have classes. I don't think there are any Sur La Tabla in the area.

          There is both a Williams Sonoma and a Sur La Table at Southpark. I do not know if they have cooking classes though.

            As the man who teaches the classes at WS, we ain't hands on. I talk a lot and people take notes. We're just not set up for it.

            I enjoyed watching your videos on your site, but your name had renditions of Tiny Dancer playing in my head ;-)

              Hey! I saw you at the market! I was giving a tour and getting coffee! After I got it I looked for you and could not find you! Next time stick around! I would love to say hello!

              Johnson and Wales has cooking classes open to non-students.

                A friend of mine has taken classes with Heidi Billotto, who is the food editor for Charlotte Weekly and another magazine. I think they were taught at Queens Univ. I am not sure how to sign up but you should contact her at Charlotte Weekly (www.charlotteweekly.com) - she has a great reputation for being a fantastic cook.

                  I used to love her TV shows. Does she still do that?
