Cook Smart Eat Smart logoThe Cook Smart, Eat Smart curriculum teaches cooking techniques that can be used to build a repertoire of entrees and side dishes to encourage preparing and eating more meals at home. There is an emphasis on healthy preparation techniques, simple ingredients and limited use of prepared foods. In addition, information is presented to help participants plan, shop and stock a pantry that encourages simple meal preparation.

Each session contains several basic cooking techniques and other topics related to preparing and eating meals at home. Instructors are encouraged to do demonstration as well as hands-on based on class size, facility, and interest of the group. Recipes in the curriculum demonstrate basic cooking techniques and most are adaptable to make many different dishes.

Class cost varies by group size. This 12-hour cooking school can be broken up into many different sessions, taught in churches, schools, or other groups, and hosted at the Extension facility or at a location convenient to you.
