The YMCA of the Northwoods, Rhinelander, will be holding three “Cooking is Fun” classes. Each class is designed to further knowledge of cooking techniques while having fun sharing recipes, cooking and tasting.
The first class in the series is “Homemade Strudel” which will be held Monday, Feb. 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Instructor Carol Bolden has been making strudel the old fashion way for many years and will be sharing her recipe and technique for making this pastry. A strudel is a type of layered pastry with a sweet filling. This is a hands-on class with participants taking the dough, forming it and shaping it around the sweet fruit filling. Each baker will go home with a strudel ready to bake and enjoy. There will be samples at class to taste.
To allow time to purchase ingredients, enroll by Friday, Feb. 14.
