The 2010 Tryon Kiwanis/Cooperative Extension Mens Cooking Class successfully completed their 10-week course and celebrated with a gala graduation at the Stone Hedge Inn. Innkeepers Tom and Shaula Dinsmore hosted the group with a celebration lunch May 4. This group is the 24rd class to graduate from the Mens Cooking Class in Polk County.

Chef Tom Dinsmore treated the men to a cooking demonstration of creating a versatile lemon sauce to use with various dishes. Dinsmore shared his recipe with the students, and offered witty and practical tips to make recipes work at home. Class members expressed awe at Dinsmores ability to turn out such great food in volume in his one-chef kitchen.

One graduate, Don Lyons after completing the cooking course said, We all enjoyed the class immensely and I would recommend it to all men who are interested in learning to cook or improve their cooking skills. We also enjoyed the good fellowship and great food.
