Series Of Cultural Cooking And Language Classes Planned

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

The Mia Cucina Cooking School will transform into a true cultural experience where participants will try their hand at the language and cuisine of four different countries On Thursday evenings in March from 6:30-8:30 p.m.,

“Food and drink are such a tremendous part of every culture in the world, so it just makes sense to incorporate that into learning a language,” said Laurie Stevens, owner of the Chattanooga School of Language (CSL). “We are thrilled to partner with Mia Cucina to offer interactive, hands-on classes for people to experience the tastes and sounds of different countries.

This “trip around the world” series will feature the Spanish, Italian, German and French languages, cultures and cuisines. Each week participants will learn basic language skills, cultural dos and don’ts and a lesson in typical food from the language instructors at CSL and the chefs from Mia Cucina.

For the full schedule of classes, visit http://www.theplaceforcooks.com. Classes will take place at the Mia Cucina Cooking School located at 345 Frazier Ave., suite 103. To register, please call Mia Cucina at 265-4474 or stop by the store.
