North Central resident Nancy Matsui returns with private cooking classes in her home, often featuring a local “guest chef” of healthful eating coach.

The next class, from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Oct. 6, will tempt your tastebuds with Sweet & Savory Breakfast ideas that can also be eaten at other times during the day, such as rice and pasta with a poached egg Florentine, or a Middle Eastern-style savory granola.

Other classes include “The International Table” on Oct. 13; “Savory Holiday Sides” on Nov. 3; and “Sweet Holiday Treats” on Nov. 10.

Recipes are provided and each of the dishes prepared will be served. Class fee is $25 per session; Take both Holiday classes (Nov. 3 & 10) and take $5 off each class. Space is limited in each class, so RSVP quickly. Payment must be received prior to the class in order to hold the reservation.

To RSVP or for more information, call 602-618-6527 or e-mail Matsui at
