Cooking class cost may vary by theme, but all classes include learning how to prepare healthy menu items, as well as sampling creations. Classes are held in the instructional kitchen located within the Wellness Enrichment Suite on the second floor of the Herbert Wellness Center. A the start of class participants will receive a brief introduction to recipe stations, ingredients, and equipment to be used. Participants will then have the option of selecting which recipe(s) they would like to explore. As participants prepare their selections, the chef moves between groups to provide guidance, answer questions, and impart information about the ingredients and techniques being used.
