The gastronomic gurus at the Auguste Escoffier School of the Culinary Arts channel the wisdom of their namesake to elucidate culinary traditions while employing locally sourced ingredients and recyclable materials wherever possible. Offered several times on the Home Cook class calendar, Knife Skills sharpen students' paring prowess with techniques that boost preparation efficiency, knowledge of classic and specialty cuts, and successful duels against swashbuckling carrots. Infuse holiday parties with meatless merriment using the skills acquired in Holiday Vegetarian Feast classes to prepare spiced pumpkin soufflés and winter-squash-and-parsnip purée. Culinary couples can cook up their own romantic seasonal feast during monthly Dinner Date classes, while gals unwind with chocolate and carbs during Girls Night Out sessions. Classic French Bistro classes navigate rich French culinary traditions, allowing students to assemble moules frites and croque madames and identify which parts of the Arc de Triomphe produce the most tender brisket.
Trek to Learn hosts a trip to Costa Rica—which contains nearly 4% of the world’s species—during which students engage with locals, participate in a service-learning project replanting rainforests, and learn about indigenous wildlife in the area. Before students can make the trek to Costa Rica, they engage in a year of intense preparation that includes monthly meetings, research and presentations, and cultural studies with a local guide. After returning home, students share their learning experiences through public presentations that aim to build the youths’ leadership skills as well as increase global awareness. Trek to Learn needs help funding the costs of accommodation and transportation to and from a service-learning site in Costa Rica for two students.

One dark and stormy night, Dr. Lee Woods, DVM received an unexpected visitor. Spooked by the clamor and rain, a doggie-daycare regular had burst through her owner?s storm door and run to the other place where she felt safe: Broadway Animal Hospital.
Dr. Woods, whose work on behalf of homeless animals earned him a humanitarian award from the Humane Society, established the hospital in 1991. The recently remodeled facility soon earned accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association?a distinction held by only 14 percent of animal hospitals. Here, Dr. Woods works alongside several animal specialists, including a certified canine massage therapist, a groomer, and a professional bacon chef. Services range from immunizations and boarding to surgery, emergency care, and house calls. From 2010?2013, the Daily Camera recognized Dr. Woods's hospital with a gold award for best veterinarian.
