Cook’s Warehouse Cooking Class

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

2013 is here. With January comes many new plans and new promises with the new year. In other words it’s resolution time. It’s time to go to the gym, it’s time to lose some extra pounds and it’s time to eat healthier. To help Atlantans through their struggles with eating healthy I photographed a few options around the metro area. On Tuesday, the Cook’s Warehouse in Marietta held one of their last cooking classes for the year. The store actually holds over 200 classes during an average year touching on numerous styles, cultures and flavors of cooking.
