Global Cook Series Cooking Camp @ The French Culinary School in Asia

I just can't resist pimping this cooking camp here as I find this series of cooking camps very interesting and seriously affordable too. Organised by The French Culinary School in Asia which I have the privilege to attend a session with Jean-Michel Fraisse and Jean François Arnaud on Häagen-Dazs' Christmas creations.

I was told that these cooking classes are meant for home cooks or gourmet food enthusiast. The cooking camps are a series of demo classes to learn how to cook global food. On the schedule so far, there were camps for Italian, Spanish, French, British and American dishes. These camps will be helmed by Chef Jean-Michel Fraisse who will take one through three-hour class on global dishes.

Priced at RM200 per person per class, you tell me if it's reasonable or not. Perhaps you will if scroll through the schedule below. Oh yea... you can also purchase the Leisure Cooking Class vouchers* where 5 classes would cost RM 850.00 or 10 classes for RM1,500.00 which is valid for leisure cooking classes and camp (*Terms and Condition Apply).

The difference of Leisure Cooking Class with these camps is product voucher will be given out to redeem products available at our premise on the spot after the cooking camp. Nevertheless, terms and conditions apply on the value of the product voucher.

The schedule and details will be available on The French Culinary School in Asia website next week but I have the schedule here.
