The classes are offered to UT employees free of charge to educate the community and share new and healthy culinary tips. Unless otherwise noted, classes are held at the UT Visitor’s Center.

Class spaces are very limited so registration is on a first come, first serve basis until all available spots are filled.  Available classes are listed below.

Finding the right flavor combination and ingredients is key to a delicious and successful meal. This recipe meets that criteria while keeping it healthy- Grilled romaine salad with vegan Caesar dressing, crispy chickpeas, charred green beans and Maitake (an edible mushroom that grows in large clusters on aging trees and fallen timber, cultivated in Japan for food and as a dietary supplement for its supposed beneficial effects on the immune system, also know as hen-in-the-woods). Jeff will also walk you through making a Burmese cashew cake, due to time restrictions it will have to continue the cooking process after the class is over. ​Cashews from Burma are specially cultivated resulting in being remarkably rich in antioxidants, micronutrients, essential fatty acids, high-quality protein, and fiber.
*Food kits provided to the first 35 registrants.*

In this class you will learn from two fabulous chefs, Erica and Francesca as they teach you how to make a dish that is rich in flavors, colors and textures- Ricotta Gnocchi with zucchini pesto. *Food kits provided to the first 35 registrants.*
