New Cooking School Opening

I love to learn new recipes and cooking techniques! I have gone to several cooking classes at Chef Jean Pierre Cooking School in Fort Lauderdale. The classes there are informative and entertaining. I've learned how to make everything from a classic Bolognese Sauce to Zabaglione. Now I'll have another option to get some great culinary lessons...

Publix is opening it's 1st Aprons Cooking School in South Florida in October. The school will be in Boca Raton. It will be the 5th school that the grocery chain began on the West Coast of Florida.

The main focus of the school is cooking classes for adults. But they will also offer cooking classes for kids & teens, as well as wine tastings and cookbook signings. Celebrity chefs will even stop by for a visit. They will offer both hands-on and demonstration classes. A couple topics they feature in their current cooking schools are Basic Knife Skills and Chocoholics Anonymous.

Pricing and registration information will be available closer to the opening date. But you can sign up on their website for the newsletter, if you'd like to be e-mailed more information.
