New Descriptions!

Bob Burden   

Location:
Burden home near La Canada and Magee Road

We have taken our nearly 20 years of experience of teaching this series to
analyze and refine it to better accommodate your lifestyle and needs. We have
shortened the course length by incorporating the Appetizers section into the
other classes. This will better balance what you will learn in each class while
lessening your total time commitment. We also have tuned each class to better
fit the times we live in and to reflect our changing tastes. Knife Skills will now include
a wonderful Rustic Bread recipe and a fresh dessert of Strawberries with Lemon.
In the Poultry section, our appetizer will be Baked Wings with Bleu Cheese dressing.
We will continue through the series with similar changes and additions you will appreciate.
