Cooking with Friends

Cooking isn’t just an important life skill—it can also be a great social activity!

Designed for young adults and teens 18+ who want to develop skills needed to live on their own, the Cooking With Friends class will teach participants to follow recipes, measure, chop and combine ingredients, and safely operate a stove to cook simple, delicious and healthy meals. Each class will teach safe food handling, use of cooking equipment, safe knife skills, and clean-up. Topics such as balanced meals, portion control and cooking short-cuts will be discussed as well. This program emphasizes the social aspect of cooking and sharing meals together. Participants work as a team in a fun, hands-on environment that provides the opportunity to build friendships as well as create a personal recipe book.
