I’m excited about the new volunteer work I’ll start later this month with Cooking Matters, a program  hosted by the Inter-faith Food Shuttle in Raleigh.  After working on my book and being immersed in not only the farm world but the foodie one as well, I wanted to do something to contribute to those in need of basic nutrition and cooking assistance. But more on my class later. On to YOU!

Here’s how you can get a free copy of “Farm Fresh North Carolina” and do a very good deed. A Cooking Matters volunteer chef had to back out of a Raleigh gig starting Jan. 11 from 3:30-5:30 for six Tuesdays, and CM is desperate for a replacement. The class is for teens and is at the Wade Edwards Learning Lab. Chef volunteers are usually either graduates of or enrolled in a two-year culinary training program or have at least two years working as a cook or chef. If you fit that profile and are interested in putting your skills to great use, this is a perfect opportunity. You’ll follow an established program, and the leaders will walk you through everything. Easy peasy!

If you’re interested, contact Emerald Padilla, Cooking Matters AmeriCorps Member at or 919-250-0043.  And IF YOU SIGN UP to teach this class, let me know, and I’ll send you a free copy of my book when it’s out in March. Heck, I’ll invite you to the media launch party on March 7 as well. Go for it!
