Basic Cooking Class – Session 5
April 6 to May 25, 2011
This class will address the importance of basic cooking skills. We will be learning about proper food handling, storage and labeling. We also work towards understanding what it means to have a healthy balanced diet, and how to make healthy choices on a budget.

AND most importantly we will learn how to cook!!!
It is important for everyone to know that having independence in the kitchen is a responsibility, and to ensure that we have the knowledge, skills and tools to make sure it is a great experience each and every time.

The Basic Cooking class is now taking registrations for the fifth session starting April 6, 2011. In the past this course has filled to capacity quickly so if you are interested please contact Crystal at 283-0611 ext 304.
