Macaroons, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week,
by Claire Freiermann | THE NIBBLE.
Are you in greater New York? Are you planning a trip?
If so, in-between the shows, restaurants and shopping, plan to take one of the culinary courses available through the Institute of Culinary Education.
ICE’s Recreational Division (i.e., you’re not enrolled in a professional program to become a chef), has terrific opportunities. You can take a short, intensive “immersion” class in:
CULINARY TECHNIQUE: Basic Sushi, Food Technology for the Home Cook, Handmade Pasta, Pizza, Tapas, Spices and more
BEVERAGE COURSES: Coffee Expert: From Plant to Cup, Food & Wine Pairing, Green Wines High-Tech Cocktails, Tea Tasting and more
PASTRY & BREAD COURSES: Bagels, Baguettes, Breakfast Breads, Chocolate Desserts, Classic Croissants Cream Puffs/Eclairs, Doughnuts/Fritters, Italian Pastries, Madeleines & Macaroons, Parisian Breads, Tarts & more
We’ve taken great courses there and in the process, have tasted the breads (including croissants) made by baking students. They’re the best in town, so your recipes will be the envy of all your friends.
You can give a gift certificate, too. With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day on the horizon, how about bonding with your parent while making croissants, pasta or high-tech cocktails?
Coffee connoisseurs: Check out the two-day intensive seminar created for devoted coffee lovers and industry professionals, students will dissect every detail that goes into crafting a superior brew.
