Hands-on Cooking with Jodi

We are happy to welcome Chef Jodi Strizic back this fall. Jodi will be offering a series of classes. If space permits we will allow participants to register for individual classes after Sept. 25. Registration deadline is Oct.5. Let's take the suffering out of supper, misery out of mains and melancholy out of meal planning. In this three part series, Chef Jodi will help you plan better meals, simplify suppers and give inside tips and tricks to help you while preparing meals. We will concentrate on making one main meal and then learn how to use components for other meals. This series will help make your meal planning faster and easier without putting a strain on your food budget.

Part 1 - Tuesday Oct. 10: Learn the basics of planning a meal through a Chef's eye. You will make your own heart healthy tomato sauce and learn about its versatility in other recipes. Create no-knead bread, a watermelon and feta salad and a dessert to complete the meal.

Part 2 - Tuesday Oct.17: See how a chef plans to use left over's. You will make your own chicken stock from scratch and chicken pot pie. Chef Jodi will also teach you about the many creative ways to use leftover chicken from this recipe. You will make a biscuit mix, a salad made entirely from leftovers and sweet biscuits filled with cookie dough cheesecake bits for dessert.

Part 3 - Tuesday Oct. 24: Chef Jodi will teach the basics of entertaining for your friends and family as well as how to personalize recipes without the stress. You will make a brunch casserole, spicy chicken dip with bread dippers and sweet biscuits. The last half hour of this class will be a question period to give you the opportunity to ask the Chef any questions that you may have about planning meals, events, cooking etc.
