Searching for week-long boot camp Aug 1-7

Can any of you good people recommend a personal chef or cooking school that could give this visiting New Yorker a full week of intensive basics, 7/31 or 8/1 - 8/8 ? I'm visiting the area for a professional conference and am coming out a week early (Hattori and Shigefusa knives in tow) just to get the basic course I've always needed. Any leads appreciated!

  1. Are you willing to travel? Both the CIA in Napa and Ramekins in Sonoma have classes. Tante Marie is here in San Francisco, but their calendar does not look very impressive to me, while others have indicated they enjoyed their classes there.

    1. Give someone at PCI http://www.professionalculinaryinstit... a call. They are located in Campbell (basically San Jose). I know they have summer and weekend courses. I am sure by calling them on the phone you can get a more accurate list of events. Goodluck!
