When Gerald Bennett began work as head chef at the InterContinental Hotel in Cleveland, he was accustomed to whipping up dishes for celebrity clientele. But when the royal family of Dubai came to visit and he served them in their opulent suite, he never thought they'd ask him to leave with them as their personal chef. Since returning to the states and stepping into his role as the president of the Private Chef Association, Gerald has worked to bring his gastronomic prowess to the masses through Food Fun Adventure’s classes and tours. He passes along a visible passion for culinary fusion, which shines through in dishes blending French and Thai or American and German influences.

Culinary tours take participants to local sushi houses, steak houses, and bistros, each highlighting specialty dishes. When head chefs come out to greet their visitors, they often divulge culinary secrets and answer questions about curfew hours for free-range ingredients while doling out tapas and other small plates.

In a more hands-on culinary experience, customers gather in classes and learn to refine dishes based on a chosen theme. Using mostly local and organic ingredients in two kitchen classrooms, chefs show students how to craft delicacies such as scallion waffles with orange-zest chicken and tagine-roasted rack of lamb. In one kitchen, which doubles as an art gallery, knives flick through ingredients, and pots clatter at island stations and small burners. The company’s event center, Heaven, fills with chatter as up to 40 pairs of students filter in. Beneath projectors for screening chef demonstrations and documentaries about the life of a paring knife, separate kitchens equipped with ovens and burners fill with the bustle of creation, which gives way to reverent exhalations as patrons finally sample the fruits of their labor.

Intense, 30-minute boot-camp-style workouts blast exercisers out of lethargy, and, when paired with yoga or TRX training, help them to reach their fitness goal, whether it’s sculpting a six-pack or building enough strength to bear hug a bear.

Brian and Rebecca Fulton are a husband-and-wife duo that decided to turn their image-making passion into a full-time job. Bring up to three buddies or fashion-forward centaurs and the two shutterbugs will capture your best side during a one-hour photo shoot.

Along with a full array of online and digital copies, you can also adorn office desks and sleeping in-laws with good old-fashioned prints of your favorite shots.

Adult Literacy League's adult education programs are geared toward adults 18 or older who read at or below a fifth-grade reading level. Students in the financial-literacy program learn basic economic principles, including how to budget, use a checking account, save money, and begin to accumulate assets such as a home. More than 70 percent of the program's students are struggling with insufficient income due to unemployment, a lack of savings, or poor credit, yet the league never refuses services to participants unable to pay for their books. With the help of a Money Matters workbook, students can begin managing their finances and plan for other financial opportunities under the guidance of a tutor.
