Good Food Workshop 
Tuesday, July 21st
6pm - 7:30pm 

Join Chef, Jennifer Clair, as she arms us with all the information we'll need to be the best-informed shopper and cook. While there is plenty to learn about food from a good cooking class, there is still a lot of food education that needs to happen before you head to the kitchen.

This workshop will include a comprehensive packet of information and recipes to take home.
