Mondays- Food Themes

For the month of September, you can look forward to the following topics:

Food Themes:  All classes will focus on apples, including a look at different varieties, how apples are harvested and simple cooking projects. 

Food and Science:  Upcoming classes look at jobs for scientists in food, the changes that Fall brings, and the ways a cocoa plant ends up as a candy bar.

Lets Take a Tour:  Upcoming is a tour that looks at the Reading Terminal Market, a public market in Philadelphia that offers a variety of meats, poultry, seafood, cheeses and more!

Classes on Monday, Tuesday and Friday all begin at 11:00am on the Zoom platform.  
Chefs of the Month: David and Derric
We launch our inaugural edition of the online version of  Food for Thought with new Chefs of the Month: David Tapper (left) and Derric Diggs (right)! Each week, they work together as a great team to prepare a sheet supper and make it look easy. Let's take a moment to give them a round of applause and congratulate them on this well-earned honor.  They make a great team.
