Things to do in Orange County NY this winter (cooking).

In the winter in Orange County NY, the wind howls, the ground may be covered with ice and snow, but that doesn't mean you have to stay in! If you're willing to warm your car up, get bundled up, and go out, there's plenty to do.

 

This week, the Orange-Ulster Boces adult and continuing education brochure ended up in my mail box. I idly glanced through past the health career, trades and occupational training programs. I kept flipping until, screech!, I saw the Culinary classes! There are some that are focused on food handlers. I skipped those. Then the baking classes. There is a baking "boot camp," cake decorating, sugar cookies, and icing related classes. Those might be of interest to someone wanted to do more baking. But for me, the interesting section was the cooking classes....

 

I love to cook, especially new meals that I've never made before. Last night the new add was a roasted red pepper sauce for roasted potatoes. The sauce wasn't a "10" so I probably won't make it again. But I'm always looking for new ideas.

 

Things to do in Orange County NY this winter (cooking)Imagine my surprise when I saw the school is offering fourteen different classes! They include South American, German, Puerto Rican, Italian, Tex-Mex and Asian cuisines. They also include a class on appetizers, as well as classes on pizza, soups, chocolate, ravioli, stews and pasta. Each class is held at the 53 Gibson Road, Goshen NY facility. Classes are all held in the evenings from 6-9pm, and each subject has several possible dates.

 

I don't know anything about the instructors, or how the classes are conducted. I do know all students are asked to bring their own aprons, so cooking will actually be done. I signed up for several, and I can't wait!

 

There is plenty to do in Orange County in the winter. If you are interested in learning about any of the above options, check out the school's online brochure at www.ouboces.org.

It's been pretty cold here in NH but very little snow fall and none expected for at least the next two weeks. The cooking classes sound like fun...I hope you share with us your experiences with them.

That's nice you can just pick out the classes you want and don't have to take all of them.  I hope they turn out to be very rewarding!

Kat Palmiotti - Your positive thinking resonates with me! As I read through your blog post, I was reminded of my own childhood memories growing up in cold Chicago, affectionately known as the "Melting Pot!" Whenever it got too cold, my mother would turn on the oven and say, "Let's warm things up around here!" She would bake cookies, homemade soup, and something else to keep us warm and well nourished. Then after we cleaned up, she'd tell us to go outside and play. It didn't matter whether or not the school was closed (which rarely occurred) or how many inches of snow was on the ground, we used our stored up energy and had fun playing in the cold.

Hi Kat

What a terrific round of cooking classes. Anyone who likes to cook and wants to learn more is sure to have a great time. I enjoy cooking, but have yet to take an actual class!

I love reading your memories, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP . Your mom was a smart lady to get the stove going, and the house warm, and then send you outside to play! We spent a lot of time outside as children as well, and I really do think that was a great way to grow up. Once in a while as a treat in the summer, my mom would do the same thing, but to cool us down. We'd sit on the front step stirring a manual ice cream maker. Around and around. When the ice cream was finally ready, we would eat some drippy cool ice cream, then run off to play. Great memories.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - I took a few cooking classes many years ago in a different location and I do remember having fun. I don't remember what I cooked though. This time I want to pay attention to new methods/etc.
