If you love to cook, this class is for you. If you know you can't cook, this class is for you. If you're one of those people who says "it's just reading a recipe," this class is definitely for you.
Join Blue Ridge Community and Technical College's Steve Weiss on Saturday mornings from 10AM to 1PM to get a taste (or two or three) of what it's like to be a real chef. Supplied with professional grade equipment, Chef Steve will walk you through every step from sifting to sampling, as well as lending some tricks of the trade along the way.
For $59 per class, you get Chef Steve's expertise, 100% hands on experience, and you take home whatever you make--can't complain about that kind of homework!
Some of the past classes have featured homemade pastas, breads, and vegetarian cuisine just to tempt your tastebuds. I dropped by the macaroon class *swoon* and watched the students create coconut, almond, and French macaroons. The French macaroons were especially fabulous; not only were they pretty, but they were the tastiest of any I've ever tried.
There are still some great classes left for the fall semester and then there will be a whole new batch for spring. Visit www.blueridgectc.edu to sign up today, as spaces are limited. The Italian Class is already booked full, and as the holidays approach I'm guessing the gingerbread class will be gone soon too!
