Get Cooking for the Holidays for Yourself and for Others

For many of us, the first image that comes to mind when we think about the holidays is that of food. Whether it’s the turkey and mashed potatoes of a Thanksgiving dinner, or the bright colors of decorative holiday cookies, food images flood our head even before the holiday music hits the airwaves.
This is the perfect time of year to try one of our unique holiday cooking classes. Whether you want to impress your friends and family at your next dinner party, or you are looking for ideas for holiday gifts, you’ll find help with one of these three courses. The classes make nice early gifts, themselves!

12/11 at Ross Boddy Community Recreation Center 6:30 – 9:30 pm (course 339374)
Think about all those people you would like to thank this holiday season: the crossing guard that keeps kids safe, the nurse who knows how to give a painless flu shot, the fitness instructor who keeps you feeling fit, the friendly check out person at the grocery store who always makes you laugh… Why not thank them this year with an easy yet meaningful gift from your kitchen?

This course will show you how to make a variety of tasty treats that can easily be wrapped and packaged as gifts including Soups-in-a-Jar which contain everything needed for a fresh pot of soup (just add water!), Mamie Eisenhower’s Million Dollar Fudge, and a holiday bar cookie that will delight taste buds. Participants will learn about wrapping and packaging for food gifts, and will enjoy snacking. A $20 food and material fee is required.
