The goal of the March 27-29 class is to turn foodies who are average cooks into superior home chefs.
Nine hands-on cooking classes will be taught by well-known chefs, and students will also attend three seminars (one is all about chocolate) and take a couple of behind-the-scenes field trips.
Tuition is $1,995 per person.
[Updated, 10:56 a.m. Feb. 13: A previous version of this post incorrectly reported that the price was $1,195 per person. It is $1,995 per person.]
Restaurateur Bradford Thompson, a New York-based, James Beard Award-winning chef, will serve as culinary director. His faculty will include:
- Duff Goldman, star of Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes” and owner of Charm City Cakes in Los Angeles and Baltimore, will lead a cake-decorating class.
- Frank Pellegrino Jr., proprietor of the Rao’s restaurants in Las Vegas and New York, will teach students how to prepare classic Italian dishes.
- Laura Werlin, one of the country’s top authorities on cheese, will educate participants on incorporating cheeses into dishes.
Three breakfasts and three lunches are included, as is a graduation ceremony at which participants will receive their “Enlightened Palate” diplomas.
Special lodging rates are offered at Caesars Palace.
