Here is what students are revealing about the “Spoon it with Luann experience”
“Every month I really look forward to Luann Alemao’s cooking class! It is my gift to myself to participate in it! Luann helps us learn about the Blue Zones and the many positive aspects of the Mediterranean diet.”- Pauline.”
Luann’s Spoon It classes have been a great way to try new dishes using different ingredients that I might not have tried on my own. The recipes are easy to make and the ingredients are easy to find in any supermarket. It’s also been fun to meet new people who are also interested in cooking healthy and having a fun evening together. I look forward to each month’s classes and new dishes to try!” – Sara
Limited spaces!! Each class includes hands on experiences in the kitchen of making and creating healthy meals all inspired by Blue Zones regions. Each class offers a featured speaker to enhance the culinary experience. Come and experience the culture, music and wine if you wish. Following each class we will offer an optional wine experience in downtown Cedar Falls.
The latest concept is to conduct the classes in someone’s home. If you know of someone that would like to bring people together to cook, enjoy great cuisine, and cook for a cause, this is your venue.
The host or hostess selects the nonprofit of their choice to contribute part of the proceeds. The rest of us learn skills, have a great time being together and it is all in someone’s home.
Please let me know if you would like to conduct a class in your home or have a venue you would like to share.
