Cooking with Basic Shelf
“What I liked about Basic Shelf was the opportunity to enjoy instruction and quality fellowship with other participants. I also love the cookbook! I still use it to this day.”
One of the perks about being a participant in our Transitions Program is the Basic Shelf cooking program. Every Tuesday, clients meet at a local church and spend the afternoon preparing food, chatting, and most of all, having fun! The recipes come from the Basic Shelf cookbook, which features appetizers, entrées, and dessert items, all using nutritious, low-cost ingredients. Before class, participants choose the menu, and a staff member buys the ingredients. Afterwards, the food is divided up amongst the class, and everyone gets to take their culinary creations home. Participants are entitled to a $250 grocery trip of ingredients used in the Basic Shelf cookbook after completing 12 weeks of workshops.
