    Cooking Classes in NYC

    Would like to take some classes to up my game a bit. Looking at The Institute of Culinary Education
    http://rec.iceculinary.com/Home/CookingClasses

    Are there other schools that offer similar classes for recreational cooking?

    I'm pretty sure the French Culinary Institute does as well. http://www.internationalculinarycent...es/ny/cul.html

    Jeeeeses, I just looked at the 225h Spanish cuisine course - prices like in NYC... For that kind of money I would rather fly to Spain and eat my way through the provinces for 2 months. But the courses are interesting.

    I find that I learn best in a structured environment, over a period of time. Cramming a program in one-week time would simply not work for me.

    FCI program for serious amateurs looks great and classes are in the afternoon/evening, but price bites! I might have to wait till my wife is done with a grad school before I consider one.

    Might have to settle for individual classes here and there in the mean time.

    Maybe take private lessons from pro forum members
    ? Here is an idea!

    Anybody interested in giving some lessons to a small group of people? Paid of course.
    There got to be more than just me interested in the NYC and adjoining areas.

    There are plenty of companies out there that specialize in this kind of thing, and private chefs that get paid to teach to folks just like you. I'm sure in an area as richly populated as New York State, you could find someone who is the real deal.

    Marko, I'm sure if you offered to trade knives for tutelage, you'd have more offers than you could handle!

    I wouldn't have a problem with that, as long as it could be structured in a way useful for me (see #6 post).

    I remember you asked me about something like this previously with the possibility of filming something. I'm still game if you are. I can come up with a lesson plan and such but timing is always the issue. Jan-Feb I'm mostly free.
