Since I can't afford to go this time, I thought I'd let all of you know that there's a cooking class at Madeleine Bistro (Thank goodness they finally improved their website. Good work Chef David and Molly!) on Saturday, August 16, 2008 at 10:30am. Please take the class so I can live vicariously through you! You can read here about what a fabulous time I had at the cooking class I attended there earlier in the year.
Their e-mail announcement is as follows:
As always the class is filled with Chef David’s enthusiasm, humor, and passion for cooking and eating well. The class includes recipes and demonstration, questions and answers, and a three course meal. The classes are always fun and informative so bring a friend to share the experience. The cost is $75 per person; reservations required.
The theme and menu for the next class are...

While you're at it, go support the sisters of Spork Foods by taking a class or 12. They have their schedule posted through September, which means you'll have plenty of opportunities to experience the joy that is a Spork Foods class. You can read about the 2 Spork classes I took here and here.
