Award-winning Kiwanis men’s cooking class offered in March

Published 10:57 am Friday, February 24, 2012

The award-winning Kiwanis Men’s Cooking Class will be offered for 10 weeks beginning March 6 at the Polk County Extension Center in Columbus. The class size is limited to 10, and only a few spaces remain.
Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Tryon and North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service – Polk County Center, the men’s cooking class has been a popular annual program since 1986. Men say they take the course for a variety of reasons – personal interest, increased cooking responsibilities because of the loss or disability of a spouse or at the urging of their spouse.
In addition to basic cooking skills, the program covers topics such as buying and storing food, nutrition, budgeting, food safety, microwave cooking, special classes on seafood and Italian cooking and meal planning.
Jimmi Buell, extension agent for family and consumer sciences, will be the instructor for the class, with the help of special guest instructors.
There is a fee for the class, and registration is required. For more information, or to register, call the Polk County Extension Center at 828-894-8218.
