I'm going to find myself unexpectedly by myself this weekend in DC (family out of town) and thought I'd try to find a participation cooking or culinary class of some kind. I'm highly flexible on the time (Sat or Sun all day), location, and cuisine, and am a fairly accomplished amateur cook, and would be up for an ambitious hands-on class. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
Alternately, if anyone needs an untrained but skilled assistant cook for a restaurant or culinary event this weekend, please contact me, I could probably work in exchange for food and wine and hanging out with other foodies. I'm comfortable with any Euro / French / Julia Child style of cooking and used to dashing out multi-course meals for 4-8 people (we do a lot of entertaining), and am a very quick study in other areas.
