Chef Eric Wells will kick off this season's Cleveland Cooks series with our first cooking class tomorrow 1:30-3:00pm at Old Stone Church.

About Cleveland Cooks
A monthly cooking series providing hands-on demonstrations from area chefs. Classes are free and open to the public and include a guided market tour, hands-on instruction in meal preparation and tips on how to grow produce easily at home.
