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.

Bruce Fence Company came through for me in a big way last spring. Another local fence company gave me a price and a date and then faded away. (Perhaps a bigger job came along, but have the decency to call.) Needless, to say this failure to keep the date as promised created frustration with the neighbor on the other side of the fence. From my first telephone contact with Bruce to my first visit in their office and then through to completion of the job, every interaction was friendly and professional. The entire transaction went like clockwork.
