HOW Cooking School

This is Gracie Schatz and she runs the Heart of the Willamette (HOW) Cooking School, a community cooking school that currently offers virtual cooking classes for all skill levels. Every month she puts together six public cooking classes to inform and inspire. These classes have a sliding scale ($0-$35) fee structure so that anyone can access them. Here are her classes scheduled for December.
