Here is what is coming up in the Culinary Corner for the week of Feb. 9-14:
Cheap, Fast and Healthy
Monday, 5:30 p.m.
Are you on a hectic schedule and tight budget? Are you sick of going through the drive-thru and ordering unhealthy food just because it’s convenient? Come join us on Monday nights for Cheap, Fast, and Healthy!
Each 30-minute session will feature tips on shopping for fresh and healthy ingredients, easy-to-prepare recipes, and cost comparisons. Class participants will see the recipe being prepared, enjoy a sample, and leave with a recipe card and nutrition information to make the meal themselves. The class is free with no need to pre-register; just show up.
Start Right Breakfast
Tuesday and Wednesday, 7:15 a.m.
Who said Wheaties is the only breakfast of champions? Come join us bright and early in the Culinary Corner and start your day off right! Learn healthy breakfast options that are easy, delicious, and made for champions. Breakfast will be offered Tuesday and Wednesday morning at 7:15 a.m. The cost is $5 per person.
Wednesday, Feb. 11, 6 p.m.
Sweet Treats, developed by recent UND graduate and avid baker Laura Vein, is a hands-on class dedicated primarily to baking and deserts. Each class features a different theme such as cupcakes, crepes, brownies, comfort food, cheesecake, etc. Classes are designed to show that not all deserts are unhealthy. Some baking experience is preferred, but the class can appeal to most levels of expertise. The cost is $15; the class is limited to the first seven people registered.

Prairie Meets Mediterranean

Is one better then the other? Come join your favorite dietitian Karina Wittmann for an evening of fun, food, and heart-healthy information, which will follow the tasting of nutritious food from the Prairie to the Mediterranean.

It may take a little bit of a compromise, but it is doable. Come with an appetite for food and knowledge. Class size is limited to 20 participants, so sign up early!
