Another IHF Cooking Class In The Books

Once again this evening I had the opportunity to spend a few hours with some new friends from Independent Health teaching a Healthy Options Cooking Class at D’Avolio Kitchen in Williamsville. It was great fun and I’m so glad folks laughed along with me as I over toasted the bread.

A special shout out to Dan and Karen from D’Avolio who made sure everything went smoothly and to my sister who unexpectedly popped in from out of town to assist me, photograph the event and made me an original apron.

Here are the links to our evenings menu.
