Cooking Workshops

We are offering FREE Cooking Workshops for those who are interested in learning (and practicing) basic WAPF cooking.  The Cooking Workshops will focus on the basics of WAPF cooking, with emphasis on: Simple cooking techniques, and keeping meal costs low, while maintaining high quality and nutrition.  People at all skill levels are welcome to attend.  The more skilled cooks can share their knowledge, and the less skilled cooks can learn from them.

If you have a recipe you want the group to try, please bring it with you.  If the other participants are willing to try it, we will prepare it together.  Otherwise we will shop for what is in season, what is on sale, and what is nutritious at the time of the workshop.  Then we will create a dish based on what we purchased (no cost to participants).  So each workshop will have a new creation.  We are encouraging hands on participation for those who desire to do so.

We plan to generally follow the WAPF Dietary Guidelines for our meals, but do not expect to perfectly follow everything exactly.  We want to keep the meals appealing to those who are new to WAPF, and not cook anything that the timid might be scared to try!

Our Cooking Workshop schedule is approximately as follows:

6:00pm-6:15pm  Welcome, set-up, introductions, discuss any food intolerances, talk about what to make.

6:15pm-6:45pm  Shop the co-op for ingredients, and decide what we are making. (no cost to participants)

6:45pm-7:45pm  Cook and eat together.

7:45pm-8:00pm  Conversation and clean-up.

Our next Cooking Workshop is:  February 2018?

All workshops are small groups, with up to 8 participants who each have registered for FREE to participate.  To register for this workshop, send an email to Jim: jimschmechel at gmail dot com  He will confirm your reservation by email.
