International cooking classes offer flavors from around the world

If a trip around the world is what you are craving, look no further than the Currituck County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension. Just because you cannot drop everything and book an island vacation does not mean you cannot experience the rich and diverse cuisine found around the world. Be adventurous! Spice up your menu, learn new methods of cooking, and taste new foods. All the dishes prepared will be served as lunch for the day.

These classes are open to adults and youth 11 years and older.
