how to find high-end cooking lessons?
this is for a friend, a guy who's already a great home cook. He's been making great Italian-influenced home meals for years, but yearns to learn some French technique. Anybody have a thought? A clue? I'm thinking private lessons, in his home. I do realize this won't be cheap ...
Your friend may already be set. But I have a friend, Linda Carucci, who has a pedigree a mile long/wide re teaching cooking--with awards for same--and might well be interested in doing some private lessons in classical technique. If she were able to fit it into everything else she does these days, your friend would score, big time. He should check w/ her directly: 510-482-6461.
Have you contacted the cooking schools for recs? They might have an instructor who'd be willing to moonlight:
CIA at Greystone, French Culinary Academy in Campbell, Calif Culinary Academy in SF, etc. (and several other smaller ones like Tante Marie in SF and Ramekins in Sonoma). Hope this helps.
