Celebrity Chef Cooking Classes – Spring 2013

Although there are alot of online classes available now, nothing is better than taking a “real class” and interacting with the chef and your other classmates. I am always thrilled with all the “little tips” chefs never tell you.

And it’s even more thrilling to take a class with a celebrity chef that you have admired from afar. Below is a list of some of the Celebrity Chef’s Cooking Classes offered this Spring.

Class: Italian Bistro
