|Putting Your Heart First
By Allyson Marrs
The fastest way to a man's heart (or a woman's) is through the stomach. So this Valentine's Day, show off some culinary know-how by preparing a delicious, romantic meal for your loved one that just happens to be heart healthy, too.
On Feb. 18, Executive Chef Paul Marks and Registered Dietitian Cindy Farricker are hosting a can't-miss cooking and dining experience from noon- 3 p.m. in Polaris Grill. Chef Paul will share his techniques for full-flavored heart-healthy cooking, and Cindy will discuss why his ingredient substitutions add magic to the nutritional profile of the featured dishes.
Participants will go behind the scenes with Chef Paul to master professional cooking techniques while Cindy will offer a new perspective on how to modify food choices for a healthy heart. The class will be followed by a lunch with Paul and Cindy, featuring a selection of foods prepared in the class and wine selected to complement the meal. There will also be an opportunity to engage in an open discussion with the presenters.
The cooking class costs $55/ person. Space is limited and reservations are required. Contact Tricia Loomis at 425-688-3172 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
