CECILE THOMPSON, Ferndale, browses through the items available at the new Habitat For Humanity Store in Lewiston. by Koren L Fdleld Cooking Matters is a food and nutrition program provided with the cooperation of Gleaners and MSUE. The classes consist of participants meeting for five to six times, with a nutrition lesson and a cooking lesson is taught each time. Participants learn how to prepare nutritional recipes, as well as taste them. They are also provided groceries that allow them to make the same recipes at home. Recently a cooking matters class was held in Hillman at Lickety Splits Restaurant. Marsha Marquardt was our chef. Each week she would demonstrate techniques and skills that would enhance the cooking experience of participants. The groceries were either purchased or provided by Morrison's Market in Hillman. The nutritional lessons are provided by MSUE. The participant focus was child care providers. They each received a book that provided tips and recipes that were demonstrated and practiced at the session. The providers also received groceries that would allow them to make the recipes they learned at home. One of the sessions was held at Morrison's Market to allow the participants the chance to purchase items that provided a meal for children that in- cluded something from each food group. All of the partici- pants were able to meet that challenge. ! would like to thank Marsha Marquardt for providing the space at her restaurant and for sharing her time and knowl- edge with us. I would like to thank Doug Morrison for the use of the market, donations and for his enthusiasm for the program. Also, a thank goes to Craig of Morrison's Market, manager of. e meat department for his expertise and will- ingness to Stiare his knowledge. This was a-fun experience that provided knowledge for participants in our area.
