I offer classes throughout the year at various locations in the Portland metro and Seattle/South Puget Sound areas. Classes are presented in a lecture and demonstration style, run 2˝-3 hours, and cost $29-39 each. Included are informational handouts, recipes, and generous samples of all recipes prepared in class. Take one class - or a bunch. To register, call the phone number that follows the name of the site at which you'd like to attend. So come hungry and thirsting for knowledge. And bring a pen and paper, too.
