Brazosport College’s Community Education Department is offering a perfect holiday gift for anyone looking to spice up their culinary skills. Whether an aspiring chef or a novice with the goal of preparing a few tasty treats or meals, the College’s CE cooking classes have gift bundles for everyone.

Three different gift bundles are available, with each bundle focusing on a particular theme and consisting of two classes. Class themes include cake decorating, cookie decorating and preparing four- or five-course Italian and Cinco de Mayo meals from CE’s “Let’s Get Cooking” series.

The courses are two- to three-hours long and will be taught in Brazosport College’s state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen. The first cookie and cake decorating classes begin in January, while the “Let’s Get Cooking” classes start in March.

Instructing the classes are Debbie Warren (Italian and Cinco de Mayo meals), Nina Canales (cake decorating) and Rebecca Livoti (cookie decorating). They combine for more than 75 years of professional cooking experience.

Gift certificates are available for these bundles by calling BC Community Education at (979) 230-3600.
