Free Classes at the Demo Center!
Healthy Living’s Demo Center is thrilled to announce our new series of fresh, fabulous and FREE classes!
Christina, Demonstration Coordinator, has created a unique one-hour class format that’s casual, fun and informative. You’re invited to come as you are, bring a snack, grab lunch at our Cafe or beverage from our Juice Bar, and then pull up a stool and get ready to learn!
Christina recognized the benefits and possibilities of combining a fast-paced, informal, one-hour class with bite-size, easily digestible culinary insights into ingredients, techniques and recipes that can be implemented by dinnertime! So she set to work on making several different series that fit nicely with this educational style.
Class Series include:
Ingredient Spotlight: learn all about one indispensable ingredient, including what is is, how to use it and how to store it. Ingredients range from coconut oil to citrus to tofu and beyond! This month, Christina is exploring Miso.
Kitchen Improv: explore variations within a single recipe category, including such things as delicious homemade ramen. As fresh, local spring greens are coming into season, Salad Dressings are this month’s focus.
D.I.Y.: discover the simplicity of making various homemade products such as non-dairy milks, condiments, marshmallows and hot chocolate mixes. Three classes are on tap for May: Homemade Body Care Products, Mustard and Soda Syrups.
Kitchen Confidence: find out all the the ins & outs of a specific Healthy Living department straight from that department’s buyer or manager. This month, we learn about the world of Bulk!
Cooking the Books: enjoy cooking your way through a cookbook over a month or a series of months without ever taking up a wooden spoon! Christina does all the work, highlighting key recipes, techniques and themes and summarizing the technical contents so you can feel confident you’ve learned everything there is to learn from each author. The book I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson is on its final month!
Tastings & Tours: join in educational tours throughout Healthy Living which focus on various topics and themes and always culminate with tastings! May is all about Superfoods!
Christina is always researching and creating new series of classes to keep topics fresh and inline with the needs and requests of our guests. This summer, she’ll be launching a new monthly class tackling Food Basics devoted to food labeling and general food storage. Stay tuned for more information!
