Instructor Linda Stanger holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Miami and after graduation, has taken many professional cooking classes. She was a party planner in New Jersey, Florida and Arizona for events with 10-100 guests. For many of these events she prepared meals and baked pastries, cakes, tarts and cookies. She has taught numerous cooking classes. Her love of baking stated at a young age, once she could lift the heavy Kitchen Aide mixer out of the cabinet and onto the counter. She frequently baked after school, surprising her family with a pie or other desserts made from scratch. Her love of party planning began when she would arrange platters of foods and desserts for her parents’ dinner parties.


PRESSURE COOKING, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, Tuesdays, January 17, 31 and February 7, RH Johnson Rip and Sew Room, limited to 10 people; $45 fee.

Pow! Zap! Blam! These are noises you will not hear in this exciting cooking class. Oohs and Aahs are more likely. You will learn about today’s must have appliance, the redesigned Pressure Cooker. Observe how the newest generation of cookers works more effectively, why you need not be scared of using a pressure cooker, and how it will become your favorite partner in the kitchen. You do not have to have a pressure cooker to take this class, what you do need is a love of good, healthy food and a fast way of preparing it. In three lessons, you will learn to make some yummy dishes in a fraction of the normal time. You will get more recipes to try at home and learn how to convert all your favorite meals. Bring your appetite and containers for the leftovers (as if there will be any!). Some sample dishes include Risotto, Cheesecake, Chili and others.
