Shop, Learn, Cook at the Market: Cooking A Variety of Cultural Cuisines with Chef Jim

What better way to warm up to the ongoing winter days by having a variety of flavors and recipes using similar ingredients? By adding a change to your alternative seasonings, you can go a long way to satisfy your diverse taste buds! In this workshop, we will also be addressing proper kitchen basic procedures, safety and sanitation, as well as effective meat cutting skills! Free taste testing will be provided!
