Don't like group learning or scheduled lessons, and don't want to have to depend on a partner to show up. Need something that can be done on a regular basis. Thanks.

My fiance has become obsessed with making ice cream. He has been making at least 2 new (and unique) flavors of ice cream every single week since August. He keeps saying he wants to learn more about it, and is planning on taking that ice cream master class at Penn State when the time comes, but that is a whole year away.
