My mother graduated from COLLEGE (actually Furman University) with a Home Economics degree so I WISH I had paid more attention to her cooking skills because she had WONDERFUL recipes written on 3x5 cards that have disappeared over the years.
So with my new kitchen, I have started in my quest to take cooking classes and have been pleasantly surprised to find that we have lots of local options.
Our local kitchen store * The Happy Cook * actually has classes as does our new Williams-Sonoma store. We also have a local cooking school as well as cooking courses for culinary training at our local Piedmont Community College.
I am going to Richmond on Saturday to take a course at Sur La Table which will be exciting. They actually have a classroom in the back of their store.
While I am still stocking my new kitchen, I'll be sure to check out the next big item on my WISH LIST....YEAH Baby!
