On their website, ICE claims that their recreational cooking school is “home to the largest program of hands-on recreational cooking, baking and wine classes in the world,” and it’s true: The recreational program at ICE is anything but small. Each year the school hosts more than 26,000 people in their recreational programs. The 1,500 different hands-on classes offered take place in one of ICE’s 14 state-of-the-art kitchens — the same used for their professional school and range from about $100 to $120 per class.

For $650, the most serious of enthusiasts can enroll in a five-day cooking boot camp covering the various cooking techniques.
