Easy Week Night Dinner

Easy Week Night Dinner

Grayson College’s just-for-fun and family cooking classes are under way for the fall semester. Herbs, pasta, soufflés, pie baking, easy dinners and holiday cookie-baking are the themes as Grayson College’s Hospitality Management & Culinary Arts Center partners with its Center for Workplace Learning to offer 10 recreational cooking classes this semester. Open to the public, classes take place at the Culinary Arts Center on Grayson College’s Main Campus in Denison, east of the Viking Residence Hall. Participants must be at least 16 years old to enroll in the classes, except where noted.

Taught by Grayson College’s chef instructors and guest chefs, courses provide hands-on training, demonstrations, and interactive learning in the college’s state-of-the-art facility. Participants experience cuisines, explore cooking methods, and learn disciplines and knife skills as they prepare and consume foods that range from the familiar to the unexpected. In some of the classes, participants prepare goodies to take home as well.

“Easy Weeknight Dinner” gives participants the how-to on a delicious meal they’ll go to time and time again. The menu includes romaine salad with chive dressing, rosemary potatoes and carrots, and flash-marinated, grilled flank steak. Class meets Oct. 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuition is $29 per person.

Registration can be made online at www.grayson.edu/continuingeducation. Registration may be also completed in person weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the CWL on the college’s Main Campus in Denison, or by phone at 903-463-8765 if paying with MasterCard, Discover or Visa credit cards.
