Cooking classes offered to students

Thanksgiving dinner is still weeks away, but some Pittsburg State University students will be enjoying the tastes of a homemade meal a little sooner.

Cooking classes will be offered to PSU students Nov. 7 and 14 at the Crimson and Gold Ballroom in the Overman Student Center. Students who have signed up will get a lesson in food basics, food safety, and will learn how to make recipes including chicken fettuccini with homemade Alfredo sauce and salad with homemade dressing. Next Wednesday, the same group will learn how to make fruit pizza dessert.

Food and cooking supplies have been donated by Sodexho, the university’s food service vendor. After the positive response from students last year, Sodexho Retail Manager Carol West said she decided to offer the classes once again.

“They had a lot of fun last year,” she said. “It gives them a lot of good ideas beyond Ramen noodles and microwavable dishes. Everyone seems to have an interest in cooking with all the cooking shows on TV now.”

For more information, contact West at 620-235-4992.
