ICE, ICE, Baby

No, I am not talking about Vanilla's Ice's addicting tune, but about the Institute of Culinary Education, of course!

Did the lemongrass chicken recipe inspire you to learn to cook? Are you embarassed that you have nooo idea how to boil a pot of water? Well, I recently came across the recreational classes in the flatiron district at ICE (Institute of Culinary Education).

Have no idea where to even start while in the kitchen? Sign up for "Cooking 101: The Course for the Absolute Beginner". It's three sessions (nine hours total) for $325 that will literally have you cooking up a storm as soon as you get home. From shrimp cocktail to pasta primavera to arugula pear salad to a blueberry fruit crisp. You'll be a pro in no time.

Want to focus on learning how to bake the most moist Devil's Food cake? "Techniques of Cake Baking" may just be the class for you.

Do you just want to refine your Thai cooking? Mexican? Tuscan? They've got a class for it!

Are you dying to just learn how to make THE perfect pizza? Perfect your grilled chicken recipe? Yup, they've got one for those too. "Pizza, Pizza, Pizza" or "Chicken Seven Ways" (both $105 for one 4.5 hour session) may be the classes for you.

Do you not have an interest in this blog post at all, but are wondering where the Happy Hour Post is? Well, maybe you'll like ICE's Mixology 101 class (a 3hr, $80 class that will help you master those mojito's and martini's).

Eiether way, I'm suuuure there is something you'll find interesting!

Who knows, it could be you on the next season of Top Chef...
