Healthy Entertaining Made Easy with Betty Rocker
Thursday, April 4th
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Cherry Creek

Don’t miss this class with Betty Rocker as she stops through Denver!  She is so excited to share some new recipes with you, and here is what she has to say about this class! “Cooking with friends is one of my favorite things to do. I've been doing a lot of experimenting with chia seeds lately and I have some amazing recipes to share with you that make for a wonderful cooking experience that you can share with your family and friends.

 

We'll be making gluten-free Mexican Pizza, using a spinach flatbread recipe that uses chia seeds as a binder. 

 

And for a delicious, healthy dessert we'll make a dairy-free strawberry mousse that's two recipes in one: strawberry jam in 10 minutes, and the mousse recipe that also uses chia seeds to bind the ingredients together. I'm excited to share my new recipes with you!”

 

Class will take place in the community room, and $5 gift cards will be handed out at the end.  Space is limited. Call 720.941.4100 to snag your spot!
