Oh my! Friends dropping in and you want to serve them a lovely meal….no worries if you have a pressure cooker.
In this workshop you’ll learn how to whip up a lunch, or light dinner meal in record breaking time……of course!
To quote the queen of PC cooking, Lorna Sass
“I still get three or four emails a week from people who are afraid of pressure cookers. I always tell them to relax!” says Lorna. “Pressure cooking is a lot of fun and once you understand the basics, you’ll be fine.”The menu includes West African sweet potato soup, savory bread pudding and fruit compote.

As a conclusion to our star gazing classes we’ll be heading outside to experience the winter sky! From 6:30 to 8:00 pm a night of stargazing has been planned and participants will meet at the library then head over to Isabella Freeman Retreat Center. On this night the moon will be a waning crescent – just perfect for stargazing – all we need is a field large enough and people dressed in their warm clothes.
