A gift of good food never goes bad

See how happy they look?

Well, yours truly will become one of those smiling faces sometime in 2008 thanks to an awesomely thoughtful Christmas gift from the wife. That’s right – she reserved a spot for her and I to attend a class of my choosing at New York’s Institute of Culinary Education.

If you spend a little time on the ICE site, you’ll notice the almost overwhelming number of classes they offer to the amateur chef. I could spend years there and still not run out of things I want to try. Thus, the dilemma: which to choose?

Since I love chocolate, but know the least about it, I’m highly considering this one:

OLD-FASHIONED CHOCOLATE DESSERTS

Learn to make long-time favorites that are sure to please. These recipes aren’t just classic; they’re foolproof! You’ll learn such favorites as Chocolate and Coffee Pots de Crème; Old-Fashioned German Marble Cake; Vermont Farmhouse Devil’s Food Cake; Old-Fashioned Chocolate Layer Cake with Chocolate Frosting; Perfect Chocolate Loaf Cake; Black-Bottom Pie with Chocolate Crust; and Chocolate Coconut Custard Pie.

What do you think? If you were me, which class would you choose?
