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!

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.

How should we respond when someone is being clearly inappropriate in public?
