Diabetes cooking school set

A special cooking school that is aimed at helping diabetics learn how to prepare delicious foods and manage their blood sugar levels will be held in February. The school will meet for three hours each evening February 17, 19, 24, and 26 beginning at 5:30 p.m.

“This will be the fourth cooking school that we have held,” said Quay County Home Extension agent Brenda Bishop. “The first three cooking schools have been very successful.”

Bishop said the first session will cover meal planning. The second session will cover carbohydrates and desserts and the third session will cover side dishes and the last session will be main dishes and low-fat cooking.

“Participants will receive a notebook full of information, two cookbooks, and a special gift,” said Bishop.

During the last three classes, participants will prepare and sample four dishes. Seating at the cooking school will be limited to 16 people. According to Bishop, there is no cost for the cooking school but preregistration is mandatory and participants must commit to attending all four sessions.
Interested individuals should call the Quay County Extension Service at 461-0562 to enroll. Sessions will be taught by Karen Halderson, Jessie Robinson, and Brenda Bishop. 

The Cooking School is sponsored by the Quay County Extension Service with a grant from the diabetes control program. If you have a disability and are in need of auxiliary service in order to participate in this program call Bishop at 461-0562.

The schools are funded by a grant from the Department of Health and will be free of charge.
