Cooking contest the BW Way


"Fat gives things flavor," said world-famous chef Julia Child. She should have added, "And women should be the ones to fry it up."

With women in the workplace, fast and frozen foods have become the staples of a family's diet. We understand better than anyone that the most important ingredient in any dish is love. And we know that there is no one better equipped to stir a dollop of devotion or a teaspoonful of tenderness into a casserole than a woman.

On Thursday, April 1, renowned Yugoslavian Chef Ima Lyre will offer a "Get Women Back in the Kitchen" cooking class. Chef Lyre will be in town for one day to help women relearn the skills they need to move out of the office and back behind the stove. She'll provide the aprons, hairnets and hotpads; women need only to bring a big smile and a desire to relive the good ol' days. Chef Lyre will answer questions like, "How can I make sure I have dinner on the table when my husband gets home?" and "How do I get my boys to eat their vegetables?"

Seating is limited and dress code of below-the-knee-length skirts and pearl necklaces is required.

Thursday, April 1, April Fool's Day, 3:30 p.m., $432 members/$7.16 non-members, 742 Evergreen Terrace. Call 555-867-5309 to sign up.
