The classes are:

  • January 21 – Focaccia Bread
  • February 18 – Eclairs
  • March 17 – Cinnamon Rolls
  • April 21 – Cookie Decorating

“Chef Ryan Grussing, Culinary Director at Evergreen Place, will present fun, interactive and engaging cooking demonstrations,” said Janet Soesbe, Community Program Manager.

“The demonstration kitchen is a unique, intimate setting for people to enjoy and learn more about cooking. We have limited space, so be sure to call and reserve a spot today,” Soesbe concluded.
