Happy Heart Cooking Series: Part 2 / Virtual
Wednesday, March 24, 6 PM

Continuing the Happy Heart Series, this week we are going to prepare a recipe from Milk Street Tuesday Nights. We will be making a healthy pasta dish with a simple arugula salad and a classic "heart smart" vinaigrette. Recipe, grocery list, and supply list will be available when you register for the class. The class will take place on Zoom.

Kathi Masi will lead this cook-along workshop! Kathi has been an educator for over 35 years. She is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and earned her master's degree from URI. A recently retired teacher from South Kingstown High School, she has taught classes in Family and Consumer Sciences (specializing in culinary arts). Since retirement, Kathi has worked with Farm Fresh RI, Oak Street Health, and the RI Geriatric Center, teaching classes in nutrition, A Matter of Balance, and cooking demonstrations.
