Non-degree courses or cooking retreats, internships for intermediate cooks?
What are some of your dream/aspirational culinary learning experiences? I'd love to take a long vacation to get to know one type of cooking REALLY well, learning from experts near or far (this is a long-term goal, so I'd love ANY thoughtful suggestions). Baking bread might be my first choice, learning from masters. I'm also into world (vegetarian) cuisines, but very wary of overpriced eating tourism retreat-"classes." I'd need to really learn skills that would enhance my cooking and life. I'd put myself in the intermediate cook category, knowing how to prepare almost every meal I eat by myself, adventurous with "from scratch" foods (i.e. never buy bread, have dabbled happily in soymilk making, etc.).
