BGCD Teens Kick off Winter Session Cooking Classes: Teen members of the Keystone Club kicked off a five week winter session of cooking classes with our friends at Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street. Now in it’s third year, the partnership has yielded a variety of hands-on cooking courses that educate teens around nutrition, cooking technique, recipe literacy, trying new flavors, ingredients, and more. The current session, all about healthy snacks, will be followed by another five week class in the late winter and early spring.

Our teens are looking to take the skills learned within the classes to be able to teach younger members similar skills on-site at BGCD. For more information on the Keystone Club, or any of our other Teen Programs please contact Deron Hines at dhines@bgcdorchester. org.
