CHICAGO, January 6, 2017—The Loyola University Chicago Retreat and Ecology Campus in Woodstock, Illinois, will host a new series of cooking classes beginning Saturday, January 14.
These one-session cooking events are open to the public and range in theme from a special Valentine’s Day Champagne and sparkling wine dinner, where participants will enjoy a wine reception followed by a five-course dinner, to “A Study in Cheese,” where Laura Jacobs-Welch from the American Cheese Society will lead a class on cooking, selecting, and storing cheeses.
