Cooking Along the Crooked Road

Most of you realize by now that the Higher Education Center's teaching kitchen is going to be dismantled for another use. We are getting many emails and calls about the fall cooking classes and wanted to let you know that as of now, we have no schedule planned. We are working hard to find a new venue to continue the Cooking Along the Crooked Road program and are very excited about the prospects! Thank you for your many letters, phone calls and emails of concern and support for the program. We will keep you updated with our progress and hope to be able to give you more information sometime this month...so sit tight! We want to thank all of our area chefs, culinary experts, volunteers and students who have supported and loved the classes. We couldn't have done it without any of you! You have brought new and exciting ideas, skills and much joy to the The Food City Kitchen at HEC and to the people in our area. I will continue to post some favorite photos that were taken during the last 8 1/2 years in the coming weeks. In the words of the late Laurie Colwin, " A table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source of sustenance and nourishment, festivity, safety and satifsfaction. A person cooking is a person giving: Even the simplest food is a gift."
