Food Network Cooking Classes

I'm very excited to be taking my first cooking class since I moved to Atlanta this weekend. I used to take them pretty frequently in NY, but it's just one of those things I haven't gotten around to since I got here. So I was excited to hear that Food Network has partnered with The International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Atlanta to offer a series of courses.

On Saturday, I'll be taking Entertaining at Home. For years I have longed to throw dinner parties, but my place was always too small and up until the last few years, I wasn't actually a very good cook (small detail, I know!) Now I finally have the space and the time, and yet I've been a big ol' chicken when it comes to entertaining. I want the meal to be perfect, so I feel like I have to been an expert at it before I try it on anyone other than the boyfriend. But fear no more...I'm hoping with Chef Justin Ward's guidance, I'll be confident enough to try these dishes out on some friends soon!

Other classes sound fun, too, including Paris Bistro, Cupcake Extravaganza and the oh so timely Gourmet Meals on a Budget.

A little more about the Food Network Cooking Classes:

EAT WELL ON A BUDGET AND HAVE FUN COOKING!

New Food Network Partners with The Art Institute of Atlanta to Offer Cooking Classes on Saturdays

Spring isn’t here yet, the economy isn’t getting better – and “eating out” is getting more expensive by the day. If you love gourmet meals but need to watch that budget, you’ll want to sign up for Food Network Cooking Classes at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Atlanta and you’ll find exiting ways to turn your home into a gourmet dining room!

Cooking at home brings families together, gives you new ways to be creative in entertaining friends and neighbors, and offers a cost-saving option you can actually control. Whether you’re unsure how to boil water or already have some fundamental cooking skills, you’ll find a class to suit you. There’s still time to get into some of the winter offerings, including “How to Boil Water 2.0,” “Cupcake Extravaganza,” “Entertaining at Home,” “Our Mexican Kitchen,” or “Paris Bistro at Home.”

Classes are held from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturdays in The International Culinary School kitchens at The Art Institute of Atlanta. For more information or to reserve your place,
www.foodnetworkclasses.com or fncooking@aii.edu. More classes will be offered in the spring – the schedule will be announced in early March. Cost is $119 per class and includes all ingredients and use of equipment. You even get a Food Network apron to take home! To help you control your budget, you may want to take advantage of this special offer – purchase three classes and get a fourth class free!

Food Network Cooking Classes are hands-on workshops geared toward cooks of all experience levels, offering tips and techniques from Food Network’s behind-the-scenes team of experts, the Food Network Kitchens. Participants have an opportunity to learn what the pros know and how to cook in a fun, approachable way.
