K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County is offering "Cooking 101" from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Sept. 11 in building 21 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 21st and Harper streets, Lawrence.
Extension Master Food Volunteers, a relatively new branch of the umbrella organization, K- State Research and Extension-Douglas County, have been honing their cooking skills as home cooks, but more recently as cooks trained in an intensive eight-week course given by Douglas County Extension Agent Susan Krumm and her counterparts from Leavenworth and Shawnee counties.
"Cooking 101" participants will prepare and sample a wide variety of all types of dishes, learning various cooking techniques and the basics of healthy eating. During the course, participants will interact with experienced cooks as they prepare a dish and share samples and thoughts with other class members in a short discussion period, which follows.
Cost, which includes a cookbook, food and teaching materials, will be $60 per person or $100 per couple. Class registration and fee payment will be accepted through Aug. 31 at K-State Research and Extension-Douglas County, 2110 Harper St., on the Douglas County Fairgrounds.
