|Let's Talk about Food|
|Session||Second 6 weeks 22-Mar|
This class will explore the topic of food: how we cook and eat. Do you eat to live or live to eat? Most of us are somewhere in between on that question. Class topics include a little history of the technology of cooking and eating (bring your favorite wooden spoon to class), the importance of spices and herbs, Julia Child and the cult of the celebrity chef, and nutrition myths and facts.
