Want to learn how to prepare authentic and healthy Mexican cuisine from Tom Griffiths, who writes the Entrée Vous column in Hudson Valley Connoisseur? Tom tells me he'll be teaching a hands-on cooking class this summer at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck.
Flavor of Mexico takes place July 13-15. Through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on cooking in Omega’s special teaching kitchen, you will learn to prepare simple, healthy, and tasty dishes based on classical and contemporary Mexican cuisine. There's limited enrollment. Tuition is $395 (and doesn't include housing).
This sounds like a great opportunity for those who want to improve their cooking skills with a real master. Tom is a well-respected Certified Master Chef (CMC) who has worked at several renowned establishments, including the United Nations, Le Delices Côte Basque, Regine’s, and Le Cirque. He's also a nice person. A 1980 honors graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, he now is Associate Dean for Curriculum and Instruction for Culinary Arts there.
