HOC adult English learners pay close attention to the cooking demonstration given by Chef Donna
We had another awesome night at the Hispanic Outreach Center! We made cornflake-breaded chicken and orange-glazed carrots. It was a hit!
Chef Donna introduced us to some great money-saving tips like using canned juice concentrate rather than fresh fruit juices and buying the whole bird rather than just the breasts, tenderloins, etc. One of our students taught us how to properly carve a whole chicken in preparation for Thanksgiving.
Of course, the class was taught in both English and Spanish so our students bettered their comprehension skills while learning a new recipe.
Thanks again to our students and volunteers for a wonderful evening of fun learning!

We kicked off our second Cooking Matters for Parents class at the Hispanic Outreach Center in Clearwater. We learned how to make healthy Chinese chicken and veggies, use proper cutting techniques and choose the proper portions for the food groups. It was scrumptious! Our students LOVE the hands-on instruction provided by Chefs Donna and Steve with the UF IFAS Pinellas Extension!
Here is the best part… the class is taught in both English and Spanish to accommodate our students and help them expand their food vocabulary!
Here is the schedule for Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas’ Conversation Classes for September, October, November and December.? A good way to practice your English skills is to talk to other learners, and these fun sessions are great.? You can speak? English and learn some new vocabulary and how the English language works.? Children are welcome and you can just stop in and see what we do.? We look forward to seeing you there.
