Family Cooking Day

There are truly no words to describe the energy from yesterday’s Family Cooking Class, Italian Day! It was a special event- bringing our families together, the very young to the more experienced, to learn, cook and eat was an exceptionally rewarding experience. Our bellies and even more importantly, our souls, are all filled up! Check out some quick snapshots ( amidst floury hands) to capture a glimpse of our day.

Chef Andrea spends time prepping- the pay back for this prep is huge as it helps make the day smooth and organized. Thanks Andrea!

After an acknowledgement of territory, a small snack to celebrate Lunar New Year, an ice breaker game and some fun facts about pasta, Chef Andrea takes the stage to let us know what we will be cooking today.
