Cooking with Karen is pleased to announce the August 2011 cooking classes. Classes are held Tuesday evenings from 5-7 pm throughout the month of August, and cover a variety of topics from basic beginner’s techniques to the exotic cuisine of Ethiopia. Class sizes are small to ensure hands-on experience and a personal touch, so sign up soon to reserve a space before the classes are all full! Groups are welcome, and in the future we will also be offering cooking classes geared specifically toward children, in which family participation will be encouraged.

Karen Jean Matsko Hood is the mother of 16 foster and adopted children of different ethnic backgrounds, and as such has a great deal of experience cooking for large groups as well as cooking a variety of international cuisines. She especially enjoys designing her own recipes and preparing creative menus with international, regional, and holiday themes. She is also the author of the popular Cookbook Delights series and has appeared multiple times on Good Morning Northwest to demonstrate her recipes. Karen’s love of cooking makes her an enthusiastic teacher, and she loves to share her knowledge and skill with others.

Cooking with Karen provides a unique, affordable opportunity to learn a new skill in a fun, relaxed environment with a knowledgeable and supportive teacher. When possible, organic ingredients from our farm are used in class recipes so that you can be assured the food is not only delicious, but healthy and good for the environment as well. For full details of August classes, please click on the flyer above.

Cooking classes are held in the Getaway Studio Dining Room at Mountain Valley View Farm, located at:

4229 S. Chapman Rd
Greenacres, WA 99016
