Cooking Classes in Bremerton

It’s been a really busy (and unfortunately not for cooking) kind of week, and I apologize.

I want to drop a quick note, however, about a recently started series of cooking classes geared toward home cooks. Classes are offered at the Westgate Community Hall in Bremerton, next to Crownhill Elementary School on Rocky Point Road.

Cost is $25 to $35 for a 2 hour session. I hope to try out a couple of classes, such as one next Friday on “elegant plated desserts” and maybe one on breads or petit fours.
