Happy New Year! With the start of 2014, consider taking a healthy cooking class with me! These are conducted at Marcel’s Culinary Experience in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. A brand new class I’m teaching is called “Breakfast Now, Dinner Tonight!”. It’s perfect for busy moms. I will serve you breakfast at 9:30am which you’ll enjoy while I demonstrate your evening meal. Not only will you be provided with the recipes for the class, but you’ll also be supplied with a ‘dinner starter kit’ to use as the foundation for your evening meal. The class will wrap up by 11am with plenty of time to get any half-day kids from school and you’ll already have the makings of a healthy dinner in hand! What a great way to start the year!
In the calendar below, you’ll also find midday demo classes in January and February, a little kids valentine’s hands-on class, and an evening demo class in March. I hope to cook with you soon!
