Group Cook-Alongs

Are you looking for a fun way to connect with your colleagues? We are now offering a 1-hour virtual "cook-along" for work units and staff organizations by request. The format will be similar to the  Kitchen Staples Cook-Along, but can be customized to your group's needs. 
Check with your work unit/department or staff organization to find out if there is enough interest (minimum 8 people). If yes, have one contact person complete the request form. You can request the time of day that works best for your group.
We will do our best to accommodate your requests.
