DURHAM, N.H. – Learning – and great eating – doesn’t need to stop this summer, when a new series of cooking classes at the Thompson School of Applied Science at the University of New Hampshire introduces adult learners to a wide range of cuisines and culinary techniques. From “Mindful Cuisines” to bakery classics, gluten-free to grilling, the classes tap the Thompson School’s professional facilities and culinary arts faculty.
Classes start on June 5 and run through July 19, 2013, from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays; the fee is $65 per class.
“These courses offer adults the chance to learn valuable skills and recipes they can use in a professional kitchen under the guidance of a professional chef,” says Julienne Guyette, chef and a lecturer in the Thompson School’s culinary arts program. “And, of course, everyone enjoys eating what they cook.”
“We’ve had requests for this type of class for a long time, so we’re pleased to be able to offer these courses,” adds Thompson School director Regina Smick-Attisano. “The Thompson School already enrolls nontraditional students, so this audience is familiar to us.”
