The Berkeley Public Library and 18 Reasons present "Cooking Matters at Home," a live and interactive cooking/nutrition class open to all skill levels.  The classes will be offered on the following Fridays from 4:00-5:30pm: March 5, March 19, April 2, April 16, April 30 & May 14.  Due to space limitaions, patrons may register for 2 individual classes only, please specify which two dates are best for you.  Only one reservation per household is required no matter how many people in your household participate.  Small groups and individual participation are encouraged. This is a fantastic inter-generational activity, and/or fun to do with a friend.  It is also a great way to socialize with new people, all from the safety of your own home!  Due to the interactive nature of the classes, attendance is limited and individuals may register for up to two of the classes.  Please specify which dates you prefer.

Cooking Matters is helping end hunger by inspiring people to make healthy, affordable food choices.  They teach people with limited food budgets to shop for and cook healthy meals.  Participants will: 1) Practice using recipe frameworks; 2) Cook healthy and affordable meals for their family from the comfort of their own kitchens; and 3) Discuss ingredient substitutions.

Check out these two archived demonstrations to see examples of what we will be doing: Video one, and Video two.

Ingredients will be provided, so please plan on making an appointment to visit the library to collect these if you wish.  The classes and the ingredients are free, but space is limited.  Sign-up now.
