Low Carb Cooking Class

This is a cooking class that focuses on techniques to reduce carbohydrates without reducing flavor. We realize that the growing cost of groceries affects families decisions when purchasing groceries. Never fear, thats why we’re here. All our meals are prepared on a modest budget.

Mark Snyder has been preparing low carb/high fat meals and battling Diabetes for the past 8 years. He learned how to manage his diabetes by learning new and innovative ways of replacing carbs in his meal.

ABOUT THE CLASS

We meet once a month (usually 3rd Saturdays from 10am - 12pm) for 2 hours of demonstrations, tastings, and basic culinary instruction. Mark does most of the cooking but his anecdotes and recipes will have you smiling while you dine on delicious low carb food.

MARK’s HELPFUL TIPS

Tip # 1

Vegetables that grow above the ground are lower in carbs than root veggies. If you are carb counting take note!

Tip #2

When fresh garlic is crushed, the enzyme alliinase converts alliin into allicin, which is responsible for the aroma of fresh garlic. So if you want less flavor don’t crush it, finely chop it.

Tip #3

You can peel garlic by putting it into a mason jar and shaking it.
