HeartMatters and In the Kitchen: Delight in Summer Cooking and Eating

Our seasonal cooking and eating classes continue with this upcoming spotlight on the delights of summer. Join the fun while learning about light and nutritious salads, spreads, and main dishes...

Savvy Shopping, Smart Cooking

Eating Better at a Price You Can Afford ... What an appealing idea! I am partnering with Wendy Van Wagner of In the Kitchen fame to provide this practical and fun food shopping tour and cooking class-- all in one spectacular morning! We'll meet and shop at Briarpatch from 9 - 10, during which time we'll review labels and what ingredients to look for, explore grains and legumes and other interesting bulk items, and much more! We'll then pop over to In the Kitchen for a cooking class (from 10:30 - noon) that will utilize some of the Basic Buy items being offered as an affordable purchase at Briarpatch. You'll come away with a New Pantry shopping list, information to shop smart and sensibly, recipes, and a happy stomach--as the meal is included in the price! What a deal! Space is limited to 8, pre-registration and payment is required. Register here: http://wendyvanwagner.com. See you there!

A Seasonal Spring Cooking Class

I'll be co-teaching another of the seasonal cooking class series, with Wendy Van Wagner of In the Kitchen. Join us to have some fun around the chopping block table--to cook, eat, and learn about real food. You'll go home with a big smile, satiated belly, and all kinds of delicious and easy-to-make recipes. See you there!
