The Center for Rural Development’s Your Center of Learning training program announces the addition of a new series of monthly cooking classes with Chef Mete Sergin for anyone who loves to cook and try new recipes.
“Several individuals have asked us about doing something like this at The Center, and we think the cooking classes we have planned will be both informative and fun,” said Laura Glover, director of sales and events. “Classes will vary from healthy cooking to international cooking—so there will be something for everyone to enjoy.”
Ten Your Center of Learning cooking classes have been scheduled by The Center and will include the following food themes:
• February 28: Chinese Cooking
• March 28: International Cooking
• April 25: Healthy Cooking
• May 30: Gourmet Cooking on a Budget
• June 27: Italian Cooking
• July 25: The Perfect Picnic: Grilling Techniques
• Aug. 29: Appetizers
• Sept. 26: Mediterranean Cooking
• Oct. 31: Soups and Cajun Cooking
• Nov. 14: Holiday Cooking/Sweets and Desserts
All classes will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at The Center and taught by host Chef Mete Sergin. During each session, Sergin will demonstrate how to prepare each dish and will give class members a chance to participate as well in the cooking demonstrations. Afterwards, the group will get to sample the prepared food and take home recipes from that night’s cooking class.
Class members who complete all 10 cooking classes will receive a printed certificate at a graduation ceremony and potluck dinner in January.
Special discounts will be offered to participants who register for all or multiple classes. The cost for the entire series of cooking classes is $160; five classes, $90; three classes, $55; and a single cooking class, $25. Advanced registration is required for planning purposes.
