Classes in the Putnam , Dutchess or Westchester NY area

Hi, Was wondering if anyone could suggest some bread/baking classes in Putnam , Dutchess  or Westchester NY area. I've been baking bread for a while but would like get some class room style training with pros. I'm looking for more of a boot camp style class given over several days, weeks, weekends, community colleges, etc..

Thanks

Angelo

Hey Angelo, 

I bet the CIA has some classes which is up in Hyde Park.  I'm positive you can take a course at the French Culinary Institute in NYC.  The latter is where I got my training and I'll go ahead and assume it won't be cheap.  Might I suggest going to a nice artisan bakery and asking if you could come in and watch/learn.  As a bakery manager I've had many ask me and I've certainly said I would be glad to show some folks a few things.  99% never show up.

I'll give CIA a call and see what they have, I've been trying to see if I can take the course at KAF. The Bakery thing sounds interesting, I actually know a bakery that produces on commercial scale, I'll have to try and drag myself out of bed a couple of nights just see it in action. I think my ultimate goal here is just to do some teaching at some point producing bread in a wood fired oven and selling at farmers markets, enough to augment my daily rat race office job. --for now :)

Thanks

Angelo
