This course is 12 weeks long – up to an hour between 5-6pm on Tuesday’s live on Zoom. The cooking lessons will be recorded in case any are missed.
The Zoom link and full recipe will be sent out before hand so you can have your ingredients ready for class. Weighing and chopping will be done during the class.
