From the Washington Post:   "Schneider held court the way a cooking-show host does; he cooked with prepared ingredients and threw in a little humor to lighten up the room...The chef slowed down during the preparation of a recipe to illustrate the finer points of technique."    April 9, 2010

"Champagne is versatile, says personal chef Paul Schneider.  'There are many different ways to cook with it.'  Schneider teaches an annual December class on cooking with Champagne at Bethesda's L'Academie de Cuisine."   Washington Post Express Night Out - December 31, 2009
