Join us for The Joy of Cooking: Cooking Skills for Independent Living

Monday, October 2nd

5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

at The Ability Hub (300, 3820 24 Avenue NW)

This hands-on session is a great way to help you increase your confidence in the kitchen.

While preparing a tasty and well-balanced dinner, participants will also learn about:

  • the importance of good hygiene
  • cleanliness in the kitchen and the importance of preventing cross-contamination
  • the proper use of utensils
  • how to properly measure and prepare food, and
  • working with others.

And then, you’ll get to enjoy what you’ve made for dinner!

The menu for this session is Hearty Black Bean Quesadillas.

This activity is in-person only and limited to six participants. There will only be light support provided by staff, so participants need to be able to follow instructions and be willing to work in a small group to prepare the meal. All supplies will be provided.
