Those who want to learn to cook like Tanya Tandoc, owner of Tanya’s Soup Kitchen at 1725 E. Douglas, will have many opportunities through the fall. The chef is putting on a series of demonstration-style evening cooking classes that include dinner, recipes and one glass of wine.
The classes are all $45 a person and start at 6:30 p.m. on Monday nights at the restaurant. Doors open at 6 p.m. The first class was on Monday night, and students learned how to prepare fall soups and stews, including a chipotle cheese soup.
Following is the schedule for the rest of the fall. Those who want to make reservations should NOT call the restaurant but should call 316-631-5973.
