Are any celebrity chefs offering cooking classes between May and
October 2005?  I am looking for someone with a recognizable name -
such as Bobby Flay, Alton Brown, Emeril Lagasse, Rachel Ray, etc.

If not celebrities, how about weekend packages in and around Columbus
Ohio for gourment cooking classes.

This is a follow-up to my 10th anniversary question.  Pink... the
Gourmet class you found was perfect - but wrong date, and the other
chef did not respond to my e-mail inquiry.

Hello nkamom-ga,

I?ve found some cooking events that will feature celebrity chefs that
should meet your needs. The best one seems to be the Cooking for
Solutions program in Monterey. It will offer several celebrity cooks
and you can choose which events you want to participate in. I

I?ve also found some additional trade shows and festivals closer to
your home in Ohio that might be of interest. Many cooking schools
offer classes with celebrity chefs from time to time. I?m including
directories for cooking schools so you can continue the search on your

I hope that the links I?ve provided will lead you to a fun cooking
program for you and your husband.

All the best.

If there are indeed any celebrity chefs in Columbus, Ohio ...

They probably need cooking lessons themselves.

England is the place to come for THE VERY BEST!

Right.  People who consider "spotted dick" something to eat.  I went
to England once.  They served me breakfast - I asked what it was and
they said "worst." I had to agree.

But seriously, you are right about Columbus Ohio lacking in celebrity
chefs.  Good cuisine can be found, but you have to hunt for it.   I
was actually planning to travel - didn't really expect gourmet
instructions locally.

I am not opposed to going to England, but it probably would take more
time than I planned.
