Whether you cook for one or a family, it can be easy.  No  freezer meals, processed foods or bits of frozen leftovers again.  Our goal is fresh, healthy and delicious food preparation without constant trips to the market or wasted food.  We will make the 30 minute meal reality without shopping trips.  Working primarily without recipes, you will develop a creative concept to enhance your cooking, with limited prep time and the ability to cook from what is in the refrigerator at any given moment.  You will have the skills to make a great meal or entertain faster than stopping at the drive-thru.  The class is held in a non-kitchen space.  Handouts available and some food samples served.  It's not about the recipes - it's about maintaining ingredients that allow you to be creative without notice.
