While perusing through a community book for SELREC (South Euclid Lyndhurst Recreation), I noticed a few listings for vegan cooking classes. RAW vegan cooking classes! In Beachwood, no less! Hosted by Foodgazi, one of Cleveland's up and coming vegan cooking instruction/catering companies, this series of classes covers everything from raw food basics to raw food desserts. (and boy, do I love me some raw vegan desserts! I stopped by Good 'N Raw in Lakewood the other day just to get a raw brownie. And some amazing kale chips!) Each class in the series costs $27 with a $12 food fee payable the day of class, which is a bargain considering Foodgazi's other cooking classes normally cost $65! Such a deal! And for me, close to home! All classes are being held in Beachwood Middle School's home ec lab. (When was the last time you were in a school, let alone a home ec lab?) It's a neat experience to take a class in a school setting. I haven't taken a Foodgazi class at a school, but I have taken other vegetarian cooking classes through SELREC and I've learned quite a bit. (And I've taken a Foodgazi class - words can't express how much fun it was!)
Here's the raw foods course schedule:
- 4/21 - Intro to Raw Foods
- 5/5 - Raw Main Dishes
- 5/19 - Raw Soups and Salads
- 6/2 - Raw Desserts
For full course information, including registration information, visit the SELREC site. Like most vegetarian and/or vegan cooking courses, the more people that register, the more likely it is that courses will be held in the future...
