Church Health Center Scores Big Talent for its Fall Culinary Series

Posted By on Fri, Sep 19, 2014 at 12:20 PM


After the success of its spring culinary series, the Church Health Center (CHC) is coming back for seconds. Beginning in October, they will offer a cycle of weekly cooking classes for the general public, each will feature a prominent local chef.

Some of the big names are Mac Edwards of the Elegant Farmer, Felicia Willett of Felicia Suzanne’s, and Melissa Petersen of Edible Memphis.

“We’re always thinking of new ways to get people in the door,” says Carolyn Nichols, the CHC’s Nutrition Education Coordinator. “And we thought, you know, we’ve got a great demonstration kitchen. Why not let people experience chefs in a different light?”

Classes, which cost $45, include food and wine. In other words, no need to bring anything—just show up. The first class (10/2) will feature Chef Jenn McCullough, who will teach a class called “the Steakhouse Experience.” In it, she will demonstrate how to duplicate fancy restaurant appetizers at home.

Interested, but can’t make it to class? You can also purchase a ticket and donate it to one of the Church Health Center’s less-fortunate clients.

“Not everybody can afford to go to a $45 cooking class,” says Nichols. “For a lot of people, that’s groceries for the week. So for them, this is something really special.”

Classes take place on Thursday, from 6:00 - 7:30 pm. Sign up online, or call (901)-701-2236 for more information.
