February 2019 Newsletter

Happy Valentines Day!

As we sit here in a quiet early February on the Cape, our team has been working on a number of events for those involved in the culinary community across the region – and plenty for you to participate in. 
We have scheduled new cooking classes with our partners at KAM Appliances which are a great opportunity to learn some new skills in your own kitchen. Also, working with Willowbend in Mashpee, we have organized a team of 4 guest chefs who will be creating a gala dinner at our ‘Taste of the Cape’ fund raiser this Spring. 
If your tastes turn to sharing your knowledge and working with others we are organizing a series of culinary classes for youth I the community and later this year we are planning a series of business & entrepreneur classes for Food Makers at Cape Tech.
Whatever your interests are – including trying one of Chef Alan’s recipes or learning about one of our newest Food Makers – enjoy this edition! (and partake)
