ONE of the CWA Affordable Cooking program classes is aiming to show budding chefs how to be a pasta maker.

If you are looking for an opportunity to learn a new kitchen skill, this could be the class for you.

The program will be held at the Midland Town Hall on the first Tuesday of the month.

The first class will be a demonstration on pasta making from Victorian visitors Laurie and Hilda Inglis.

They have come from the Yarra Valley to show West Australians their pasta making secrets.

Kicking off on Tuesday September 6, the classes will go from 10am-noon, when all those attending get to sit down and eat the pasta made in the class, and the meals are made in the Midland Town Hall Building’s kitchen.

The cost is $5, which covers the food preparation and serving the meal at a communal table.

The room holds about 20 people or more who are keen to learn to cook and eat well on a budget.

The CWA would like to strengthen the Midland Place Community Partnerships Program and assist men living alone who would like to learn to cook.

Midland CWA president Maureen Barker said the Inglis Family were first generation Italians who grew up with traditional recipes and loved to share them.

Anyone interested in joining the class can ring Maureen on 95761334.
