Cooking: Soups, Stews & Cassoulets

There’s nothing quite so comforting as a hot bowl of soup or as mouth-watering as a hearty stew on a crisp winter afternoon. Soups and stews also stretch your dollar and, better yet, freeze well so make as big of a pot as you want. Join us and learn great techniques for developing delicious, healthy meals full of richness, warmth, and flavour. Our meals will include both vegetarian and meat-based recipes, as well as tips for make-ahead freezer meals and adjusting your recipes for allergies, intolerances, and dietary restrictions. Great cooking isn’t about recipes — it’s about techniques. In our classes, we will work together in a fun, hands-on environment, sending you home with a meal portion and the inspiration to try something new this winter. A $40 consumable fee for ingredients is payable to the instructor at the first class.

With over 8 years of experience teaching home economics and cooking classes for teens and young adults and more than 25 years’ experience catering for friends and family, Angie shares her love of cooking with every mouth-watering dish.  Adapting recipes to dietary restrictions has been her recent challenge, which she has tackled with glee, and creating the healthiest food options for clients is her goal.  She is looking forward to sharing her enthusiasm in the kitchen with you!
