Cooking 101 - Registration Still Open!

Only a few slots are still available for you to participate in the basic cooking course called “Cooking 101" being offered by the Douglas County Master Food Volunteers. This course was created because of people who called K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County and asked if they ever give basic cooking classes.

In this seven-class, hands-on course, participants learn and practice basic cooking skills and meal planning techniques. Each week, participants interact with experienced cooks as they prepare dishes and share samples and ideas with other class members. In addition, short presentations are given on a variety of topics, including healthy eating, knife skills, kitchen safety, slow cooking and meal planning.

The class will meet from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays from October 7 to November 18 in Building 21, located on the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds, 21st and Harper Streets in Lawrence. The $85 fee per person (couples $150) includes the cookbook, a chef’s knife, an instant-read thermometer, lots of food to prepare and sample, and instruction. Participants must be 16 years of age and older.

Class registration and payment will be accepted through Monday, October 6 at the K-State Research & Extension - Douglas County Office on the fairgrounds or online at Any questions about the class can be answered by contacting me at (785) 843-7058 or
