Bon Appétit

Thursday, November 8, 2012

While the Area 30 culinary arts class learns about gourmet cooking each year, instructor Mary Ann Birt also finds a number of ways to get them involved in the community while practicing their new skills. Two of these include Friday lunches at the Ivy Gallery and in taking part in Cooking 101 classes presented by the Purdue Extension Service. The first Ivy Gallery meal will take place at noon this Friday at Area 30 door number five with a meal of sweet potato soup, roasted root vegetables, sautéed collard greens, roasted pork and a choice of apple dumplings, chocolate fudge torte or pumpkin sheet cake with cream cheese icing. Cost is $10.75. The meal will feature produce from local farmer Bobby Zaring. For more information, contact Birt at 653-3515. The Cooking 101 class will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 and will focus on appetizers. The program costs $5. Reservations for Cooking 101 should be made at 653-8411. Busy preparing themselves for the events recently are (from left) Tyler White, Thomas Gross, Ron Palmer, Birt and Brianna Donner.

$10.75, for a school lunch? Who plans these events? I'd like to support the school but $21.50 for me and my wife is too high for pork, collard greens and sheet cake. No salad? It's like going to a barber college for a hair cut and paying more than a cut at Dick's.

Mary, you're doing great! Keep up the good work!

Maybe instead of thinking about it as going to a barber school and paying more than a trip to Dick's think of it as paying $15 for a little bag of carmel corn from the Boy Scouts. You're not doing it for the value of the item received but to help the program.
