Learn Culinary Institute of America Recipes And Tips!
No, don’t worry – this list of “CIA Secrets” won’t get you in any trouble! Recently, Peter Salerno (of our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc.) and his son Anthony took a trip to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, to experience a day of cooking and culinary craftsmanship with master chefs.
While each chose to take a separate CIA cooking class, both learned incredible CIA chef recipes that they will certainly use for the rest of their lives. Anthony attended the Under the Sea (seafood) course, while Peter Salerno chose the Mediterranean Cuisine cooking class.
We know what you’re thinking – isn’t the Culinary Institute of America just for aspiring chefs? No! There’s an exclusive section of the CIA website for “Enthusiasts” that promises “CIA classes to satisfy your culinary cravings”. You don’t have to enroll in a full course of study – take individual classes that fit your passions!
From Boot Camp Culinary Vacations to cooking and baking classes to wine and beverage courses, the “Enthusiasts” program is a real winner. Check out their locations here.
Both Peter and Anthony raved about their experience at the Culinary Institute of America – not to mention they each brought home enough food for days!
Peter Salerno was so enamored with the recipes he learned at his CIA Mediterranean Cuisine cooking class, he’s sharing two of them with you today:
- Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Golden Raisins
- Paella with Quail, Shrimp and Chorizo
Both dishes are fresh takes on classic Mediterranean fare, and Peter and his family were thrilled with the results. We hope you are too! Please enjoy these recipes and share them with your loved ones.
