Two Peas and Their Pod: Viking Cooking School

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Viking Cooking School

I am sure everyone has heard of Viking, in case you haven't...they make the BEST kitchen ovens, refrigerators, ranges, etc. They pretty much make it all! Someday my kitchen will have all Viking appliances...I will keep dreaming for now:) Anyways, they also have several cooking schools around the United States and they just opened one in Salt Lake City.

Josh is a business consultant for a bank and I am
a health educator for Utah's workiste wellness program, but now we are also assistants for the new Viking cooking school. How cool is that??? We worked at the V.I.P party and the Open House over the weekend and it was great fun! We helped make appetizers, served, talked to customers, did dishes, etc. We help with whatever is needed!

Classes will begin soon. They teach everything from basic knife skills to pastry classes. There are so many good classes!! We are excited we get to help out. It will be fun working and learning from top chefs and cooking on the best equipment!

For more information about the school or classes visit this site:
there is a school near you!!

How cool!!! The kitchen looks so amazing! I actually was inspired to start cooking because when we moved into our apartment it had a viking stove and I felt bad letting something so nice go to waste.

Blogger Maria said...

Flourchild-Yes, come visit Salt Lake! Let me know if you decide to come! It would be fun to meet up! We can show you around the school and maybe you can take a class!

Kathy-Sorry there were no pictures of me. I spaced it. I was too busy having fun. I am glad I got one of Joshua in his chef's coat! He was looking mighty handsome, like always:)

Oh, serious fun. Our local adult ed lets you taking cooking classes for free if you assist (which I think means washing the dishes...) and I've always been tempted to volunteer. I'd actually just like to take more cooking classes just for a hoot. And (speaking of serious fun!) I like your new banner.

How cool. Congrats to both of you.

I never heard of Viking cooking schools. I'm afraid if I went to one, I might start suffering from too much appliance envy. It's all GE in my kitchen because that seems to be the only company that makes appliances small enough to fit in that 8x8 space.
