BACKGROUND

United We Eat@home has been a popular program in Missoula, every week selling out of 175 meals in less than an hour. Customers LOVE the food produced by the chefs, and have expressed interest in learning how to make the food themselves. During COVID, this demand has grown, and classes have been very popular with the community. 

Cooking classes have become great ways to spotlight different cultures in our community, from refugees who also cook for UWE@home, to immigrants who are eager to share their culinary home culture with their new community.

THE COOKING CLASSES

During COVID, classes are held on Zoom, and filmed in the First United Methodist Church kitchen where we cook every week. Classes are designed to last between 1.5 - 2 hours, and the goal is for you to cook at home alongside the chef and UWE Kitchen Manager so you'll have a delicious meal to eat at the conclusion of the class. We record all classes and will send you the link to the recording so you can try the recipe again later.

MENU & INGREDIENTS

We try to offer a vegetarian version of the dish if possible. After purchasing a ticket to the class, you'll be sent an ingredients list a week prior to the class so you'll have time to purchase ingredients. A Zoom link will be sent 1-2 days prior to the class so it doesn't get buried in your inbox.

PAYMENT

Chefs are paid for their time planning the class, as well as prepping and clean-up. If you select the drop-down menu box for $20 instead of $15, we'll put that tip money directly in the chef's pocket for you.
