Culinary boot camp at SCCC

kitchen knivesThis could be an interesting/fun food experience: SCCC and the Chamber of Schenectady County are offering a three day culinary "boot camp" in January. It's pricy, but it could be worth it if you're a serious foodie or have been curious about a culinary career.

Via Wendy Voelker, one of the organizers:

Schenectady's Culinary Boot Camp is a three-day, two-night culinary workshop, offering food lovers and novices alike the opportunity to learn classic cooking techniques, taste ingredients, and share a great experience with fellow foodies. ...
The three days of professional instruction by Chef [Christoper] Tanner are centered on the theme "A Taste of Tuscany." Students will learn about traditional Italian cuisines, classic Italian ingredients, Antipasti, Primi (pasta, polenta & risotto), Italian ingredients, pairing wine with Italian dishes, and creating Italian desserts. Brief seminars blended with extensive hands-on cooking time will offer students a true interactive culinary experience (which even includes a professional chef's coat)!

The course runs January 3-6. It's $590 ($690 with hotel stay in Schenectady).

Sounds like fun but at that price it's a course for well off foodies with plenty of time on their hands. I'd like the experience but not for nearly a week's pay.

Yeah, me too, ditto, I agree.

Wish I had a spare 600 or 700 dollars right after Christmas.

so much less expensive than the CIA course and the course sounds really good. Thanks!

And even more unfortunate if, as has already happened at the nano college, these untaxed buildings serve as a tax haven for businesses that would otherwise be contributing to the City of Albany or a neighboring jurisdiction.
