A sampling of cooking classes, spring 2013

gio culinary studio homemade pastaWe've pulled together a list of upcoming cooking classes that look interesting or fun a few times and people seem to like it.

So, here's a new batch of classes for the next few months -- from risotto, to using the whole duck, to veggie burgers, to homemade pasta, to pastry, to canning...

This is not a comprehensive listing. If there's something not on her that you think is worth a mention, please share!

A lot of these classes tend to sell out -- in fact, there were a handful of classes we would have included here, but they're already full (sad trombone). So if something catches your eye, better to sign up earlier than later.

Great offerings. That photo doesn't really make my mouth water though.

I know Personal Wine Cellar in Glenville does some free "cooking with booze" style events occasionally. Looks like they've got one coming up on St. Patty's Day.

I enjoyed the food trucks, outdoor space, and galleries, but the park was missing some music.
