Chef Roland Mesnier

July’s hot with cooking action for everyone.

Several great classes to get in on, including one at Publix Apron’s with former White House pastry chef Roland Mesnier – a master of the art of confections and pastries. Try your hand at a professional kitchen at Cook’s Inc. in Jupiter in a class where you can cook for friends. Try the bargain wine flights at the Culinary Cafe on Friday nights. Learn the flavors of Cuba at Whole Foods.

Series cooking classes start the week of July 20 at Publix Apron’s — serious students should check them out.

Here’s all the action in the calendar list format.

    I am looking for a cooking class in the Stuart, Fl area that would be appropriate for me and my teenage daughter to take together. Any ideas?

    I too am looking for cooking classes in the Stuart area. I prefer learning more about vegetarian/vegan cooking and also raw food eating. Marlene
