What’s New in the Kitchen?

Extension offers virtual program & cooking demonstration


PUTNAM COUNTY - The Putnam County Community Center will host University of Illinois Extension for a free virtual program, “What’s New in the Kitchen.” This virtual program and cooking demonstration will take place on Friday, Dec. 4 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Join Susan Glassman in the kitchen as she discusses modern kitchen appliances for the home kitchen. Have you been thinking about purchasing a spiralizer or an air fryer? How about an electric pressure cooker? Maybe you have one and don’t know how to use it.

Glassman will cover the research and discuss the purpose and functionality of each appliance. Learn the economic and environmental benefits and safe operation of these kitchen appliances. During the program, she will show demonstrate how to make a recipe in an electric pressure cooker (instant pot) for everyone to see. After class, watch for handouts and recipes to appear in your e-mail along with a quick survey.
