Sign up for our Clergy Christmas Cooking Classes
Since we can't meet for in-person clergy dinners this Christmas season ... we're going to a "digital" dinner ... and it's all desserts! That's right, your ABCRM staff is inviting you to an online Clergy Christmas Cooking Class.
Savor the samples below, but don't delay ... Santa might be preparing his sleigh, but these classes only have a limited number of spots. So, sign up now and enjoy a Merry and Bright start to the busy Christmas season.
These classes are offered via a Zoom conference, and we're offering four different holiday desserts at four different times to better accommodate your busy December schedule.
Some important updates:
* Your class registration is for a "connection." Please just register your name, and you're more than welcomed to have additional people in your kitchen. Your registration simply reserves a slot for the Zoom class.
* Please select only one class: Although we have a tasty selection of classes, we are limited on the number of individuals who are enrolled in each course. We have worked diligently with our wonderful lineup of chefs to ensure a variety of dates and times to meet your busy schedules.
* A gift card arrives after the class: Those enrollees who participate in the actual class will receive a gift card reimbursement (of up to $20) to help offset the cost of these virtual classes.
