The most often asked question about Kitchen Divas is – is it for vegetarians?
While we are not trying to convert folks to being a vegetarian, we are focused on increasing the fruits and vegetables in our diets. So classes and demonstrations welcome vegetarians and focus on plant-based meal preparation.
At the end of the cooking experience, participants will have participated in the preparation of and sampled food to create a menu for one complete meal.
