UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State Extension invites you to take a tasty trip to the Mediterranean as part of its “Let’s Cook with Penn State Extension” cooking class series.

“Let’s Cook Mediterranean” will take place from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on December 4, 2019 at the Berks County Agricultural Center. The Mediterranean way of eating is considered one of the healthiest diets worldwide and focuses on plant-rich cuisine, with less focus on meats and sweets.

In this hands-on cooking class, participants will create an authentic Mediterranean meal that’s healthy and delicious. To register, visit extension.psu.edu/lets-cook-mediterranean or call 877-345-0691.

The “Let’s Cook with Penn State Extension” classes address nutrition, healthy shopping, time saving tips and more, so cooks of all skill levels can navigate around the kitchen with confidence.

There are multiple “Let’s Cook” classes, focusing on a range of subjects, including special diets, weight management, and cooking for one or two, to name a few. All have been developed using science-based best practices. To see all the cooking classes currently offered, visit extension.psu.edu/lets-cook.
