October at Cookology

There's a lot to love about October: the kids are back to school, the weather is crisp and cool, there's beautiful foliage lining every street, and your favorite shows are back on TV! Unfortunately Fall is also the time of year our stress levels can go into overdrive. After all, you've got to drive the kids to school, have nothing warm enough to wear, need to rake all that foliage off the driveway, then can't seem to make time to watch your favorite shows!
We can't guarantee you a leaf-free sidewalk or an updated DVR, but we CAN simplify one of the season's biggest stressors: the holidays. Our October schedule is packed with classes that will teach you how to make your dinners and parties cheaper, easier and more delicious!

Check out some of the staff's picks for October.
We've got you covered from cocktail gatherings to full dinner parties!

Nothing relaxes us more than comfort foods. Luckily Fall is a great time to prepare warm, hearty, scrumptious meals. Want to incorporate some awesome seasonal foods into your Autumn meals?

Look no further than our Seasonal Cuisine classes!

There's also two special workshops scheduled this month. One on Curing and Brining, special techniques used to preserve and enhance the flavor of foods, and our always popular skills boot camp where you'll learn all the culinary basics in just 5 weeks!

Click on the links to register for the sessions - they will sell out, so act fast!
