¡Que Rico!

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.
