Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

You don't have to be a college kid to go to college, you don't have to be concerned with grades to get an education, and at MDC's School of Community Education, you can empower yourself with knowledge from a world of learning opportunities.

In downtown Miami, there are eight classes taught in Wolfson's Kitchen. Recurring Short Order character Sidewalk Chef Shashank Agtey teaches Cooking Under Fire, a four-week course on cost-effective gourmet home cooking. Feeling the recession? Invest in an alternative to eating out, and save money. We personally vouch for the Sidewalk Chef's charismatic personality, commitment to his craft, and desire to share it with the world. 

Other classes at Wolfson's Kitchen teach basic cooking, French cooking, wine appreciation, cake baking and decorating, cooking for profit, a basic vegetarian series, and even a food handler certification class.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
