Basic Cooking Class – Session 7
January 25 to March 14, 2012
9:30am - 11:30am at Co-Op Midtown Market - 1130 11 Ave SW
Cost: $55 (includes all materials)

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.

Our fabulous instructor, Steve, is back with his fun curriculum to teach us how to make some delicious, everyday, and not-so-everyday, dishes.

The Basic Cooking class is now taking registrations for the seventh session.  Individuals from all agencies and their support staff are welcome. Payment is due prior to January 25, and can be made in person by cash or cheque.  In the past this course has filled to capacity quickly so if you are interested please contact Crystal at 283-0611 ext 304 or by email: crystal.tite@c-a-s-s.org.
