Join us for a series of three Healthy Regional Cooking classes with local Registered Dietician, Laura McCain!
Using local, seasonal foods from Oryana Community Co-op, Laura's three classes will include inspiring discussions around the health and healing properties of cooking and consuming whole foods. She'll provide guidance on honoring traditional mindsets and embracing the cooking process as a joyful time in the kitchen, not as a chore.
We hope you'll join us on the following three Saturdays from 1:00pm-2:30pm at the Botanic Garden Visitor Center:
January 26th: An Afternoon in Italy
February 9th: An Afternoon in Asia
February 23rd: An Afternoon in Mexico
All three classes will include cooking demonstrations and there will be time to talk, share ideas, enjoy each other's company and, of course, to eat!
Laura's philosophy: Food and eating should include friendship, camaraderie and laughter.
There is no fee for this series of classes — please bring a donation to support The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park.
These classes are open to the public and advance registration is required. Each class is limited to 25 participants.
