The plans and ideas for the OFFLINE cooking class sponsored by the Food Stamps Cooking Club have been rolling around in our heads for awhile now. We like what Jamie Oliver is doing with the school lunch program. We admire the hard work and dedication Emeril Lagasse and Rachel Ray have invested in feeding people who need assistance. We also like the interest and respect that’s being directed at SNAP, WIC and other public programs.
When Twitter popped up with Chef Shawn Bucher, Mother Connie was turning cartwheels in her office! And when the good Chef offered Mother Connie his help with the cooking class, well, she went a little off the charts wild with excitement! The Food Stamps Cooking Club will gladly help him to promote his book because we believe in it and its ability to help any cook of any experience level. It is really something special, just like Chef Shawn. You can learn more here: The First Timer’s Cookbook and you can follow Shawn on Twitter, too!
The chef’s philosophy is refreshing. He demystifies foods and their preparation. He takes us out of our awe-struck fearsome place and into our comfort zone. He relaxes the “rules” that are either in place or that we imagine are in place. The book begins with a warning about how the reader will be expected to read and think and he assures us he can help to train our brains so we can get what we want. How refreshing is this approach to food?
Golly. That would work outside the kitchen, too! We could, by learning to cook-even on a tight budget, understand how to nurture relationships or attract the kind of job we want or even the kind of life mate we would like to meet.
That’s asking a lot from a cookbook. You’d better check it out.
If you are using SNAP, WIC, or food pantries, you are the Guest of Honor here. The same is true if you utilize food commodities, Farmers Market Coupons, Angel Food Ministries, or every sale your local market offers. We are all here to support and encourage one another, gang. Let’s give it our all.
YOU may have ideas about the offline cooking class. We would love to hear from you. Seriously. Send us your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org .
