If you have a passion for cooking and wish to expand your culinary skills, then VU:2 is for you. The second installment of our wildly popular Viking University series, VU:2 is highly educational, personally rewarding and fabulously fun. In this exciting new series, we’ll hone in on specific types of cookery while preparing gourmet dishes with an undeniable “wow” factor. Never again will you suffer with fallen soufflés or dull, lifeless vegetables. Tender, flaky fish, succulent meats and poultry and loads of other delicious dishes are featured in this impressive repertoire. At the end of the series, you will have a strong and well-rounded background in all aspects of gourmet cooking. Join us once a week for 3 hours of hands-on instruction in this unique 6-week series. VU:2 – it’s the next step in your culinary education.
