City Market Cooking Classes

If you work downtown, you can get an education fix during your lunch hour: City Market is offering demonstration-style cooking classes each Wednesday from noon to 1:30 p.m., now through the end of October. The classes are free and no reservation is required, and each class is repeated every week of the month -- so, if that conference call runs longer than expected, no worries!

Here's the schedule of this year's topics:
  • June -- Food allergies: gluten-free grains and baking
  • July -- Heart disease: high-soluble fiber, low-sodium and low-fat options
  • August -- Vegan and vegetarian cuisine
  • September -- Diabetes: cooking with whole grains and legumes, healthy snacks and omega-3s
  • October -- Cancer: cooking with colors (natural plant pigments), organic and soy options, using herbs and spices
