Ladies Meeting and Cooking Demonstration - January 29

We are looking forward to kicking off the year with a presentation by Linda Soper Kolton. She is planning to demonstrate and sample recipes from a very popular Moroccan cooking class that she has taught. Linda’s introduction to her presentation is as follows: “Brighten up a chilly winter day by taking a tasty trip to Morocco! Moroccan cuisine is considered one of the most important cuisines in the world because of the diversity of influences from colonizers and immigrants who left their marks. 

Join Chef Linda Kolton and learn how to cook a healthy three-course meal that reflects a Lenten approach to the rich flavors and traditions of this North African country.” Her menu includes: Heart Vegetable Tagine, Herbed Carrot Couscous, Baklava-Inspired Chocolate-Dipped Dates. The date is Sunday, January 29, 2023 starting promptly at 12:00 noon.

There will be a short Business meeting before. PLEASE REMEMBER DUES FOR THE YEAR - $30.00.

Also, thank you for your donations to Easton’s Food Pantry but please remember to check EXPIRATION DATES!

Loving Father, please bless our students in the year ahead. We ask that you make their minds teachable and their hearts open to receive Your word.
