Hi everyone, I am not sure if all of you are aware of this but CADO has been facilitating a basic cooking class that runs eight weeks. We concluded our second session in June and it was another great success. The FALL session will be a continuation of basic cooking with a perhaps a few different cooking options from the last session. Folks who finished participating in session two are invited to register again and continue on as well as other folks who may be interested. This class is open to all CASS clients and external clients. Space is limited so early registration is encouraged and the cost is $55.00 for the eight week course – this will cover ALL course costs. If you know of someone who would like to register or you would like to know more about the course content/outline please use our website contact form.
