Cooking 101: Curriculum Ideas Please

What are some interesting and non-typical food/cooking/culinary workshops that you've attended? Looking for ideas different than the usual "Foods of [insert country]" and "Great Brunch Ideas."

I need to plan a year's worth of hour-long workshops and am trying to jazz things up a bit. The setting will be in a fully-equipped demonstration kitchen, but not a space designed for formal cooking classes. I've got lots of local foodie/chef talent willing to be presenters and they're willing to try new things. As an example of what I'm looking for, an acquaintance recently attended a short seminar highlighting the taste, texture, and preparation differences between grass-fed, corn-fed "organic," and mass-produced beef. The presenter was a local beef producer who knew her product inside and out. Not your usual knife-skills class.
So, what are your favorite and interesting culinary workshops?
