Free and Easy
Some of the greatest culinary ideas in town can be
found at the four Macey’s stores in Utah Valley — and the
classes are all free! At each store’s Little Theatre, teachers
share recipes and cooking tips, and pass out samples of
each finished creation.
Each store offers multiple classes per week, and each
class focuses on a new theme.
“Our most popular classes are when we teach a full
meal — especially ethnic foods,” says Bonnee Byrne,
events coordinator at the Provo Macey’s. “We’ve also
done classes on Café Rio recipes and date night ideas.”
