LetzEat! cooking class demo in The KitchenA new cooking class series taught by Lenexan John Thomsen, is heating things up in The Kitchen. Let'z Eat! is unlike many other cooking classes that may intimidate you. These two-hour in-person classes are intended for beginner-level cooks. Each class will focus on a different cooking theme, such as: Asian cuisine, comfort food, appetizers, pastas, soups and salads, and more.

During class, attendees will observe step-by-step preparation and cooking of all items included in the course. Thomsen will demonstrate with ingredients that are readily available at any local supermarket, and the best part is that there’s no special equipment needed. That means if you have a stove, an oven, and a microwave, you can take these skills from the classroom back home. Thomsen will provide you with the basic knowledge to prepare and execute a delicious meal at home that is sure to impress any of your guests.

Note: For insurance purposes, these are not hands-on classes. Attendees will watch, learn and taste-test only.

The classes will also include food to munch on during class, "Johnny’s cheap tricks," and a focus on a specific food element that is being prepared that evening. Samples of each item will be handed out in class for you to enjoy and to ask questions. Each attendee will get to take home the recipes for all items presented.

Each class will have a10-minute break at “half-time” for you to get a beverage refill or just to stretch your legs. You can purchase alcoholic beverages from Topp’d Pizza and Salads or Chewology in the Public Market and enjoy them throughout the class. Water will be provided.

Ready for class? Register for Let'z Eat Some Asian Food! scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 6-8 p.m. Additional cooking classes will be listed on our calendar soon.
