Cooking With - a Community Kitchen experience

Cooking With

If you live in the West End of Vancouver, here is a fun Community Kitchen to get involved in. On January 18th Gordon Neighbourhood House’s Chef Peter Nguyen lead a group of 9 at Cooking With, a monthly community kitchen brought to you by Young Ideas that supports young adults in growing their culinary ability.

January’s menu of Malaysian Curry Chicken, Barley Risotto, Root Vegetable Slaw, and Blueberry Buckle Cake was inspired by the cookbook, Goodness: Recipes and Stories. All of this food was enjoyed at a cost of only $2 per person.

To sign up for the next Cooking With (Monday, February 22nd, 7:00-9:00pm) you can email GNH at youngideas@gordonhouse.org  or call at 604-683-2554.
