I took the short course on the Fundamentals of Culinary Arts organized by the First Gourmet Academy from February 12 – April 2, 2009.
About the course (from their website):
Our lifestyle workshops organized under the name of “Connoisseur 101” are ideal for the culinary amateur who seeks information and hands-on learning from experienced instructors.
