This program has been cancelled. We will return to hosting DC Young Adult Cancer Supper Clubs at a later date.

with Chef Kara Garrett

Join Chef Kara for a fun happy hour of virtual cooking where she will demonstrate and guide you through making a delicious and fast homemade pizza dough. We will make a savory pesto sauce and any of your favorite toppings can be added. We’ll also use our dough to make a shortcut apple galette that is the perfect way to enjoy the start of the Fall apple season!

Chef Kara will provide helpful cooking tips during this interactive class. Bring your favorite beverage and watch for new ideas, or prepare the items alongside Chef Kara. 

Note: If you plan to cook-along, please have all ingredients and supplies out and ready to use before joining the class. Contact Chef Kara prior to class for any questions regarding ingredient or equipment substitutions. Gluten-free option can be shared ahead of time if requested.
