A few months ago, I wrote up a story about Price Chopper Market Bistro's Cooking School. I would be remiss if I didn't cover a few of the other fantastic options for cooking classes in the Capital Region.
The first place I think of when it comes to cooking schools in the area would be Different Drummer's Kitchen Cooking School. They have been in the area for over 20 years and offer an extensive list of different classes.
They have a wine tasting and pairing class on Wednesday, September 17, featuring Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery and Fox Run Winery. The class will be taught by Patrick Mannato, a local executive chef with St. Peter’s Health System and an avid wine enthusiast. Details available here.
I haven't attended a class in a while, but hope to soon, and I'll be sure to take pictures and post a write up.
