Wednesday, April 16, 2014 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm Location: Wild Thyme Cooking School, 1060 Chinoe Road (in the Chinoe Road Kroger Plaza)

Does your idea of cooking involve a can opener, a microwave, and takeout menus? Do you watch cooking shows longingly and wonder just how anyone learns to use a knife that well or to confidently read a recipe? Ever wonder who would possibly be patient enough to teach you the basics to get you on your way? Well, this is the class for you! Chef Allison with the Wild Thyme Cooking School has designed this class around learning the absolute basics, with plenty of time for questions and teaching basic skills. You will deconstruct recipes into ingredients and simple methods. There will be lots of one-on-one instruction to make sure that you leave confident and ready to take on dinner for family or friends!

  • Yes, there is a better way to chop an onion.
