ULSTER COUNTY CLASSES MARCH, APRIL, MAY

I'm offering a few classes soon at Ulster BOCES in Port Ewen, each for a very reasonable fee. Chances are you would take some food home. You have to register for these classes in advance. www.ulsterboces.org, 845-331-5050. The classes only run if there are a sufficient number of people to take them - at least 6 but no more than 10.

(I'd like to find other available places as well for teaching cooking around the Saugerties/Woodstock/Kingston area. Private classes in your home are available.)

Meanwhile see if any of these are of interest:
