Mediterranean Cooking

Thanks to all who attended the January Mediterranean Cooking Class at the Jefferson County Cooperative Extension Office! We had a wonderful time meeting members of the community and helping prepare this healthy, delicious meal. If you’d like to join us on the second Tuesday of each month @ 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM at the Jefferson County Extension Office in Pine Bluff (500 Idaho Street, Pine Bluff, AR 71601) for this class, contact Mrs. Mary Ann Kizer at 870-534-1033 to sign up! Here are some of the pictures from our last class.

The Mediterranean diet is loaded with health benefits. The heart-healthy Mediterranean diet recipes are easy to prepare, so easy that a team of community senior volunteers provide a step-by-step demonstration on how to prepare and incorporate Mediterranean diet foods and meals into your life. This healthy cooking educational event is filled with fun. The most exciting part is that you get to fellowship and eat heart-healthy Mediterranean food. Come cook, eat, and learn to be healthy. Mediterranean cooking classes are sponsored by UAMS South Central Center on Aging.
