Classes in Barcelona. Practice a Language, Learn to Cook

This is really for folks who will be staying in the city for a couple months or who live here. Taking classes at the city’s community centers is a smart way to practice your Spanish or Catalan and learn something interesting at the same time. I am all about killing two birds with one stone, and the classes at La Casa Elizalde give me that chance. Want to learn to cook Japanese food? They’ve got it on Fridays at 5pm. How about a painting class? They’ve got that, too. The classes...

America’s Test Kitchen Host, Christopher Kimball

One of my favorite television cooking shows is America’s Test Kitchen on PBS.  The show, in its eight season, is not only the most watched cooking show on PBS, but also very informative and instructive.  Plus it lacks all the personalities and “bam” of the other cooking shows. The test kitchen chefs select a couple dishes to perfect, then try dozens, and sometimes over a hundred versions of the dish until its perfect, easy for the home cook and as easy as possible. The resident chefs...
