Virtual Cooking Kitchen with Local Matters

Join us each month for an online cooking program hosted by Local Matters to develop your culinary skills from the comfort of your own home. Each month offers a new cooking topic, and includes a pre-recorded demonstration, nutritional learning, and hands-on component to guide you through the process of making the featured dish. Registered participants receive the grocery list of items needed for the dish, and an online link to view the demonstration prior to the program start date listed. The link will be available to the participant for six days (so it’s easy to participate when you have time!). Demonstrations may include alternate suggestions for those with food allergies.
