Hey, Mountain Palace is having a cooking class on Sunday!

The first Happy Healthy Chinese cooking class will take place this Sunday at 11:00 at Mountain Palace. Lacy has been quite intent on teaching people the importance of food content in relation to diabetes and other health issues. She is particularly interested in people learning to prepare and feed healthy foods to children that they may learn there are healthier options than fast foods, deep fried chicken nuggets with macaroni and cheese, pizza, etc. Her belief is that if parents can expose children to healthier options they may then ultimately make positive choices and lead healthier lives. There is one projection that by the year 2020 one in three children in the United States will have developed diabetes. This week she will teach preparation of chicken with cashews and celery with rice and chaofan (fried rice). Cost is $25 which includes the meal.
