Luzerne County Community College will offer non-credit cooking classes during the spring at the College's Joseph A. Paglianite Culinary Institute in downtown Nanticoke.

Cooking Light will introduce participants to heart healthy, flavor-packed alternatives to the traditional high fat, sodium, and cholesterol of today's cooking. Participants will learn techniques in lowering daily calorie and fat content without skimping on flavor.

The two-session course will be held on Saturdays, Feb. 2 and 9, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Cake Decorating provides an introduction to the basics of cake decorating including torte, filling, and decorating. Special techniques also will be covered including piping borders, floral sprays, and flower creation. Two sections of the two-session course will be held on Saturdays, Feb. 2 and 9 and Saturdays, April 6 and 13, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Home Entertaining will give students an overview of how to entertain in the setting of their own homes and enjoy doing it. Participants will be shown the most creative, safest, and cost effective ways to celebrate any occasion. The two-session course will be held on Saturdays, March 2 and 9, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Mediterranean Cuisine will allow participants to prepare and sample foods and ingredients from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Greece. By the end of course, participants will have a better understanding of what the Mediterranean diet has to offer and the health benefits it encompasses.
