Additional information on Chef Joel and the Everyday Cooking:

Everyday Cooking is a really great, intense, full-day course.
It has been described as a "culinary boot camp."

Chef Joel has being teaching this class for many years at L'Academie
de Cuisine in Bethesda, MD, and always gets rave reviews.
People really love it!

It is the course that will help you to be able to open your
refrigerator at any point and be able to make a great meal
from what's there.

(One of the things you'll learn is what kinds of things
to keep on hand in that fridge, so you open it up and see
more than just condiments and a stray beer!)

Our take-away idea for people when thinking about Iowa County, Wisconsin is 'Come grow with us'. Thanks to Chef Joel for his many contributions to this ethic!
