Cooking in your Community: Connecting People through Food - Cocinando en su Comunidad

porter.dean1's picture

Participants in the class will learn about food,
culture, and language through cooking workshops and group
conversations.  Facilitators will share some of their own knowledge and skills, but we encourage participants to share their own knowledge of other languages and methods of cooking. The class will be very interactive and hands-on.  

People who love to eat or cook will enjoy the class. Participants who speak languages other than English are strongly encouraged to participate. However, no special skills are required to be in the class and we welcome all participants regardless of skills or experience cooking. If you would be interested in leading one of the classes, start to
think about a type of food you know how to cook and would like to
share with the class.  We'll base the class around the skills and
interests of the people who decide to participate.  We may have a few
guest cooks as well!

Participantes aprenderán de comida, cultura y lenguaje por talleres de cocinar y conversaciones de grupos. Facilitadores compartirán su propio conocimiento, pero formentamos que participantes comparten su propio experiencias en otros lenguajes, culturas y métodos de cocinar. La clase será muy interactiva y experiencial.

Personas que encantan a concinar o a comer les gustará la clase. Participantes que hablan otras idiomas aparte de inglés son fuertamente formentados a participar. Sin embargo, no habilidades especiales de cocinar son necesarios y todos participantes son acogidos. Si haya personas que les intersen a demostrar una receta para una clase, empiece a pensar sobre un tipo de comida que sabe a concinar y que le gustaría a compartir con la clase. Construiremos la clase sobre la habilidades y los intereses de los participantes. Tendremos unos concineros invitados también.
