This fall the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) is once again hosting its Celebrity Chef Cooking Series where locals will have the opportunity to learn from six of Boston’s top chefs.

Chris Frothingham of Vine Brook Tavern will kick off the chef series on Monday, Sep. 23 with “A Taste of the Tavern,” focusing on innovative American cuisine. The following Monday (Sep. 30) Karen Akunowicz of Myers & Chang will lead the BCAE’s “Behind the Line,” one of the organization’s most popular classes where students actually work together  in a “restaurant-like” atmosphere where they’ll serve a small group of diners their dishes. The following week Bronwyn and T.W. Food’s Tim Wiechmann’s will lead an innovative class, “Bavarian Bites,” on Tuesday Oct. 1.

The chefs of Centerville Pie Co. will conduct a Festive Fall Pies session on Monday Oct. 7th , where you can learn how to put your apple picking to good use. Gabe Cheung of The Paramount spices things up with “Havana Night” on Tuesday, Oct. 15, and Greg Jordan of Mare Oyster bar collaborates with Notch Brewing for “Brew and Chew,” a class full of food and beer pairing, on Monday Oct. 28. Hungry yet?

Not only do students get to rub elbows with some of the most celebrated chefs in the area, but they’ll have fun doing it. Each of the classes is held in the BCAE’s state-of-the-a-art kitchens and gives students a rare chance to re-create some of their own favorite dishes.  If you live in New England and consider cooking a hobby and interest, look no further. The options at BCAE are endless. For more information on the BCAE’s Celebrity Chef Cooking Series visit or call 617-267-4430.
