Schwaben Home Cooking ClassFood is one of the most vital aspects of a culture, and one of the most challenging to maintain and preserve for future generations. There are a great many dishes and delights in every culture, and not every family has every dish as part of their traditions. So to fill in the gap, and help in preserving our culture as a whole, the Schwaben Club hosts Cooking Classes where members can come and learn to cook the dishes they may never have previously had the opportunity to. And they’re a lot of fun too! Here are pictures from classes of the past.
