Holiday meal prep doesn’t have to be stressful, especially since UNM Continuing Education has a plethora of cooking classes to help stoke the spirit of the season.

Satisfy a guest’s sweet tooth with the “Keleidoscope of Cookies” or “Holiday Pie” baking classes, bring international fare to the table with the “Mediterranean Table” or “Southern Indian Vegetarian Cooking” courses or prepare for every visitor’s unique dietary needs through the “Gluten Free Baking” or “Diabetic Cooking” seminars.

Most cooking classes follow a one-evening format. Students practice cooking hands-on, and enjoy a great meal that they helped prepare.

Holiday cooking classes run on various days throughout Oct., Nov. and Dec. Each course is $59 and many are tuition remission eligible.
