Kitchen Basics – Comfort in the Kitchen @ Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay
Feb 17 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Kitchen Basics - Comfort in the Kitchen @ Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

Kitchen Basics is an adult cooking class series led by our experienced instructor, Kellyn Powers.

This month’s class will cover the tradition of Hygge – the Norwegian and Danish practice of bringing a feeling of coziness and comfort to a home.

Students will receive written notes and will have the opportunity to try all of the recipes as we go.

 

About Our Instructor:

Kellyn Powers is a graduate of Indiana University, mother of two young girls, and holds an intense fascination with food anthropology; specifically, with how food effects our quality of life, mental and physical health, and how food can be used to improve our relationships within our families and communities.

Kellyn has 15 years of experience in the food and hospitality industry, in the midst of which she graduated from The Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Boulder, Colorado in 2013. The program focused on “bare-bone” techniques in the kitchen, primarily using a knife, an oven, a whisk and a bowl to concoct all sorts of delicious foods. Outside of the kitchen, Kellyn studied modern agriculture to become more conscious of our food and where it comes from.

Kellyn’s style of cooking is an eclectic mix of healthy comfort food. Just because it is good for you doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste, texture and quality of a meal!

The downtown YMCAs have helped me find the path to wellness. I've done two half marathons and learned so much about bicycle safety because of their encouragement. The most supportive and caring staff (now friends) around. I love this place!!!
