The Adirondacks & the Lake Champlain
Valley of Upstate New York & Vermont have long been known for their truly
unique & varied cuisine ranging from fresh caught native brook trout cooked
over an open campfire to world class dining at five star resorts.
In the internationally acclaimed City of Saratoga Springs, diners can choose from
over fifty exciting restaurants with menus featuring everything from spicy Mexican
foods to hearty homecooked
meals. If romantic candle light dining in a Great Camp setting appeals to you,
the beautiful Saranac Lake and Lake Placid region offers an unparralled experience.
Because of the abundant fish and game found throughout the Adirondacks, visitors
have the opportunity to sample such native culinary delights as smoked
roast duck, and fresh rainbow trout.

Learn the culinary skills you need to get ahead!
If you are interested
in interior design and looking to specialize in designing beautiful
kitchens that take into consideration style, use and function - an
online kitchen design school may be right for you. Designing a kitchen
is a very personal project and you must work closely with the user
of the proposed kitchen. In many kitchens space is
limited, so multi purpose and multi functional spaces are worked into
a good design. Redesigning
a kitchen doesn't always have to be a major expense. In fact, with
smart designing skills you can redo a kitchen for a fraction of what
is the industry standard. A good online design school can start you
on your way.
