We had 22 people at our first cooking class with abundant food and fun! 3 more cooking classes continuing on 2/13 on every Thursday during lunch hours in February, based on recipes from my bestselling books, "Eat Vegan on $4 a Day," and "Kitchen Divided-Vegan Dishes for Semi-Vegan Households." Feedback was if all else fails, I should be a comedian. I don't know...but we sure had lots of laughs.
Fresh Market has generously supplied the food, thank you very much!
The class was so successful, I've agreed to keep the weekly classes going through April. Schedule/menu posted here soon. Thanks!
The Anna Maria Island Community Center is the only place taking reservations. We're in a larger room now. So be sure to call them at [masked]-1908. Payment with a credit card or check reserves your spot. $15 for members, $19 for non-members per class now.
You may recall that the last time I taught classes was before my books...when I taught as a trained cooking instructor for Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's "The Cancer Project" for 6 years in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. I've also taught cooking classes at local Whole Foods in Sarasota, Tampa, and all of the South Florida Whole Foods that have facilities for class instruction.
In the PCRM days, the classes were fully-funded (those were the days!) and free. I often had 2 classes a day, 5 days at the community center!
The fee for these new classes covers a percentage that goes to the community center for facility amenities and staffing, the rest buys the supplies.
This will be the only class series I teach before my next books, "Paleo Vegan," and #4, on vegan fitness come out. And then back on book tour. :)
I'll post a meet-up reminder for each class, but I thought I'd give you a heads up in case you'd like to get this on the calendar. Thanks for your interest and hope to see you there!!
Though I hope you will, a reminder that RSVPing "Yes" to this Meet-up here will NOT reserve your spot. Calling the community center is the only thing that accomplishes that. :)
