10 Fun & Easy Ways to Cook at Home: FREE Cooking Technique Class at Whole Foods Saturday March 12

Santa Barbara, CA (PressExposure) March 11, 2011 -- *Learning to cook from scratch is a life skill that practically guarantees better health.

*"When you eat the real thing you're less likely to crave the stuff that looks so good but never seems to satisfy your cravings. That's because what you're really craving will never be in packaged food designed only for profit. So you will eat and eat and eat trying to get it, but it's just not in there."

*By getting back to the basics and learning just a small repertoire of recipes you can take charge of your health and have a lot of fun in the process.

*The joy of cooking is all about learning to prepare and share a meal together.

*"Real food doesn't just please our taste buds; real food deeply nourishes our souls."

Barbara believes this connection to whats real is what we're really craving. This is why she is a major proponent of cooking together and making sure kids learn this valuable life skill. To encourage this she will be distributing vouchers for Camp Cucina, A Culinary Crash Course for Teens.

Camp Cucina used to be offered only during the summer but with more families staying close to home during spring break it seems like a good time to offer it. It's like an international culinary adventure right in your own kitchen. The vouchers waive the cost of tuition for the kitchen host if used during March and April 2011.
