Cooking Class: Les Dames Simple Abundance Class

I'm always happy to help out a good cause, even better if there's tasty food involved. Les Dames know how to party (see my article about Afternoon in the Country.), so their upcoming participation in Simple Abundance cooking classes to benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank should be great! Seriously, check out who's participating - there are some serious Southern Food Heavy Hitters!

Sadly I'll be kicking it in rural OH thanks to the day job. Oh well, at least I can console myself with some fine Amish cuisine...

Here's the scoop:
