BYU Students Offer Holiday Cooking Classes


    By Wing Kwok

    To help local residents brush up on their favorite holiday recipes, the Utah State University Extension will provide a free cooking class Friday, Nov. 10, 2006.

    Four BYU dietetics students will be team-teaching a class called “Cooking on a Budget With Tips to Survive the Holidays.”

    The class will help people realize that even if they are trying to save money, they can still eat delicious meals, said Brittany Jones, a BYU senior from Montana, majoring in dietetics.

    Jones also said another purpose of this class is to promote homemade cooking rather than eating out in the restaurants during the holidays.

    The cooking class will cover topics such as how to prepare turkey, stuffing and other holiday favorites. They will also have nutrition tips and taste testing.

    Trish Cutler of the USU Extension said the extension covers the cost of the food, but participants may purchase a collection of handouts titled “Kitchen Creations” for $2.

    “It [Kitchen Creations] has recipes, shopping tips and nutrition tips,” Jones said.

    The class will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in Room L700 of the County Administration building, 100 E. Center St., Provo. To reserve a space or information, please call (801) 851-8460 ext. 0.
