CLEARWATER - Take meal time from fizzle to sizzle with a five-class Family Cooking Series offered by Pinellas County Extension starting Wednesday, Feb. 27, in Clearwater.
The cooking series heats up from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the YMCA Clearwater Branch at 1005 S. Highland Ave. This series continues on the subsequent Wednesdays of March 5, March 12, March 19 and March 26.
Families learn interesting facts about foods and how to make healthy food choices. They also gain important skills to create delicious, quick meals in a fun and interactive way. Families do indeed roll up their sleeves and create food dishes for tasty sampling.
To keep it all in the family, at least one parent or guardian and child from each family must attend. Children should be at least age 8. To cover food costs for the series, YMCA members pay $25 for one parent or guardian and child while non-members pay $40. Additional children, regardless of membership, pay $5 each.
It’s been shown that children are more likely to try new foods if they play an active role in choosing and preparing these foods. So, grab the children and get cooking in Clearwater with the staff from Pinellas County Extension.
Space is limited so call the YMCA at 727-461-9622 to register.
