Summer in San Antonio is not just about keeping cool, try exploring some new areas of town.

One of the unique tours in San Antonio is at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). It is free and located at the Pearl Brewery complex which is built along the San Antonio River. The complex includes a park and shops plus restaurants to enjoy. The address for the cooking school is at 312 Pearl Parkway.

Tours take about 20-30 minutes long and are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 3:30. You can watch the chefs-in-training and learn more about the campus. Or find out what it takes to become a chef. Contact Denise Zuniga at 210 554-6400 or email d_zuniga@culinary.edu

Check the link above to see other events at the cooking school such as wine and cooking demonstrations and classes that are offered to the public. The course calendar includes such topics as: "Everyday Grilling", "Dessert Boot Camp" and "Classic Comfort Foods". The CIA website is a great place to collect new recipes, www.ciachef.edu

Other CIA campus locations across the U.S are in Hyde Park, New York and St Helena, California so if you are traveling this summer, there is more to savor. The San Antonio campus focuses on Latin flavors and cuisine. And the restaurant NAO : New World Flavors, is a showcase where students can present their dishes.

Enjoy the flavors of San Antonio. And plan a visit to the CIA for that budding chef in your family.
