There are few simple pleasures better than friends gathering in a kitchen, sharing laughter and delicious food.
This winter, the Food Fort opened its kitchen to India Latham of culinary operation FlavorSuites for a dynamic Culinary Basics course, and that’s exactly what happened. India invited members of her women’s ministry to spend an afternoon in the Fort’s commercial kitchen, and taught them how to translate their new skills to their home kitchens.
FlavorSuites specializes in culinary entertainment, seasonal specialty baked foods, consulting and education. Everywhere she goes, India carries that love of culinary education with her. “I’m always being approached on how to do so many things in the kitchen,” India explained. “I thought it was important to give [our women’s ministry] a proper foundation to start with.” The course covered subjects like safety and sanitation, kitchen appliances, and budget-friendly, healthy meal preparation.
India ended the course by inviting all the women to prepare breakfast egg muffins and fresh smoothies. “Being able to host at the Food Fort’s commercial kitchen, we had so much space and equipment available. The environment was conducive to learning and educating. The ladies learned a lot!”
We at the Food Fort were delighted to host FlavorSuites, whose worldwide perspective allows them to turn classic dishes into globally-inspired cuisine. FlavorSuites is available for catering, as well as customizable consulting and culinary courses. Learn more at www.FlavorSuites.com.
