Local Cooking Classes Unique Way of Staying Healthy in 2013

Common New Year's Resolutions are to lose weight and eat healthier. One unique way of achieving that goal instead of dieting or hitting the gym, is to take a healthy cooking class. One local chef in Morgantown is providing that, right out of his own home.

Chef Chris Halls said, "Light, fast, and delicious is one class where we do some really fast dishes. I try to keep people away from processed foods. Stay out of the middle of the grocery store. Stay on the fringes, where the meat and the dairy and the produce is, and you can pretty much eat very well."

It's called My Kitchen, and Chef Hall teaches private or small groups how to cook. He's offers all sorts of different  classes.

Not only can you learn to cook healthier, you can learn to cook just about anything. He's got ethnic classes, WV Comfort Food, and my personal favorite, the basic essentials class, for those of us who don't know how to cook anything.

Hall added, "I'm about the only one within a few hundred miles that offers these kinds of classes without signing up for courses or a big, long curriculum."
 
Chef Hall decided to open the kitchen after he retired from the military, but he had always enjoyed cooking. So he decided to go to culinary school.   Then, he and his wife packed up and moved to a cozy little spot in Morgantown.
 
"I got to a point in my life where you think, 'what is it your comfortable doing? What would you like to do?' And I always felt at home in a kitchen."
If you're not concerned about cooking healthy, bring a bottle of wine and your significant other, for a different kind of night out.
 
Jenna Elder, a cooking class participant, said, "Yeah, we're on a date right now. It's fun!"
 
Her friend Sarah Boso added, "Yeah, it is. It's a lot of fun. Cooking together, I think, brings you together as a couple.  So, I think it's a great idea. It's creative. It's not like just going out to dinner, it's something different that we wanted to try."
 
Whether you're looking to learn the kitchen basics, trying to make good on that new year's resolution, or just looking for something unique to do, take a cooking class, and reap the tasty and healthy benefits.
