Cooking program offered at Shook House

The continuing cultural education series, “Short and Sweet,” will present a cooking program at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, at the Shook House Museum on Morgan Street in Clyde.

This introductory talk is meant to be the first in a two- or three-part cooking series, depending on audience interest. All attending will receive a delicious complimentary hors d’oeuvre from Chef Richard Swanson.  Coffee also will be available.

Chef at Mountain Mist, the inn in Waynesville owned by him for 10 years, Swanson had a great deal of experience preparing tasty and healthful gourmet meals for discriminating guests. He also taught a creative cooking class for two years at Haywood Community College, as well as a cooking series fundraiser for Haywood Animal Welfare Association (HAWA)

The cost for the first class is $20 and the class size is limited to 20 people. Reservations are necessary.

This second class will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 20. Only 12 people can be accommodated. Swanson will provide all the food for the class; therefore, the second class costs $30.

For the first class only, please send a check to Richard C. Swanson at P.O. Box 155, Hazelwood, N.C. 28738. Be sure to include name and telephone number. If registering for both classes, send a check for $50. All reservations will be confirmed.
