For those of you who both dream of a career as a chef and fear that you can't make it in the big leagues...
Schenectady's first Culinary Boot Camp offers foodies professional training and exquisite dining at one of the nation's top culinary schools at a fraction of the cost of similar courses.
Schenectady, NY, December 7, 2009 -- Schenectady County Community College, one of the nation's top-rated culinary schools, announces Schenectady County's first-ever Culinary Boot Camp January 4 - 6, a three-day and two-night culinary workshop offering food lovers the opportunity to learn classic cooking techniques, taste ingredients, and share a great experience with fellow foodies.
Yes, you read that correctly. One of the nation's top culinary schools: Schenectady County Community College. Not the CIA. Not the French Culinary Institute. Schenectady County Community College.
I weep for the future of cuisine.
