FILLED – Online “Closed” 6-Part Workshop – Creative Kitchen for Adults, 3/13/23 – 4/17/23, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM ET

March 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm, Free

DESCRIPTION: Whether the thought of cooking a whole meal fills you with excitement, dread or something in between, this workshop is for you! The Creative Kitchen is designed to make success in the kitchen fun and attainable while building confidence and exploring new foods.

Join chef Kate Libby, founder of the Creative Kitchen, for a virtual six-week cooking series to learn how to add simple cooking techniques to your daily life and brighten up your meals! Cooking involves a range of skills: planning, organizing and time management to name just a few. It also involves the senses and opportunities to create enjoyable moments for yourself and others.

In this workshop we will explore:
-what goes into creating a balanced meal
-tips for navigating recipes
-how to make sure you have the right ingredients on hand (and what to do if you don’t!)
-cooking techniques and shortcuts
-what tools make meal preparation easier
-ideas for leftovers

Sessions will include meal planning as a group, live virtual cooking demonstrations and opportunities for you to “cook along” from your home kitchen. So dust off your apron and join Kate in the Creative Kitchen.
