Cooking Class: Simple Homemade Fare

Discover the art of crafting simple food from fresh ingredients in this immersive cooking class with Chef Janet. Rather than living off of unfulfilling meals like ramen and yogurt, subsist on something stronger: clear-cut recipes and a basic level of culinary knowledge. Begin your meal by preparing a Mexican skillet involving black beans, sweet potato and peppers. Continue by discovering food processing methods for meatballs or a vegetarian option. Allow a professional chef to teach you how to blend canned salmon, egg, flour and seasoning to craft delectable healthy nuggets.
