Community Center serves up cooking series


Cookbook author and cooking instructor Phillis Carey’s first class at La Jolla Community Center on July 14 – where participants learned about summertime grilling – sold out right away, thanks in part to Carey’s loyal following from her time at Great News Cooking School.

Participants got a chance to ask questions, learn about alternatives or substitutions, get visual cues on the cooking process and, best of all, eat. They watched Carey prepare three meat dishes with sides and one dessert, taking notes on the recipes provided.

Classes will continue with daytime and evening instruction. The next one covers “cool summer sauces on grilled entrees,” 11:30 a.m. Tuesday July 28 at the community center, 6811 La Jolla Blvd. Classes are $49 for members and $54 for non-members.
