The Gift of Good Food and Good Food Skills!

Seasonal Cooking Class Series: January 2011

Three talented teachers,
Two hours of cooking,
And a (free-range) partridge in a (local) pear sauce!

Looking for a fresh gift idea this Christmas?
Hoping the delicious meals last beyond the holiday?
Hungry for local?

The Food Action Committee of the Ecology Action Centre is hosting a winter edition of the Seasonal Cooking Class Series in January 2011 and gift certificates are available! You’ll get three nights of terrific instruction, delicious food, and good fun—plus you’ll go home with recipes!

Dates: “All About the Artichoke” on January 13th, “Winter Classics” on the 20th, and “It’s All About Appetizers” on the 27th

Time: 6-8:30pm

Location: Local Source Market, 5783 Charles Street

Cost: $10-$25 per evening (sliding scale)

*Participants are asked to commit to all three classes so we can build on lessons learned in previous classes.

* Payment for all 3 classes will be upfront.

*We are striving to make the course accessible to a range of income levels.  By paying $10 per class, we are able to cover our ingredient costs.  If you are willing and able to pay more, please know that the money will help support the Food Action Committee of the EAC.

To register, purchase a gift certificate, or simply ask questions, contact Keltie at 442-1077 or via email at keltie@ecologyaction.ca.

Since the cooking classes are an educational series, we will be asking participants to fill out three short surveys to gather your feedback and help design future courses. One of the surveys will be sent out to participants before the first class to gain an understanding of your current cooking skills. The second survey will be given out after the final class.  The third and final survey will be sent out 6 months later to gain an understanding of how the class changed your cooking skills.

About our instructors:

Instructors will be senior volunteers who have a wealth of knowledge about cooking to share with every generation.  All three cooking classes will be taught by different, enthusiastic seniors with the accompaniment of Marla MacLeod and Keltie Butler (EAC).  Our workshop leaders have a wide range of knowledge and experience which comes from years of cooking and baking and thus they are eager to share their skills with others.

Also, taking place in January is a bread making workshop. Learn to make three types of breads using local ingredients. Take home a cookbook of local secrets as well as a loaf of fresh bread to show off! Space is limited (6-8 people) so register now!

Date: January 22nd

Time: beginning at 3pm… (potluck supper while the yeast works its magic!)

Location: Local Source Market, 5783 Charles Street

Cost: $25-35 (sliding scale) includes a local cookbook and a loaf of bread
