The first Cooking for Life class for bariatric patients is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Blount Memorial Hospital Wellness Center in Springbrook Corporate Center.
Chef Amelia Walker will teach the class, which offers a lesson in humor, history and health.
Walker has taught cooking since 1996. She was most recently at Williams-Sonoma in West Town Mall where she taught for several years. She has taught various cooking classes at the BMH Wellness Center, such as the heart healthy cooking class.
The class is for men and women who have had weight loss surgery and their families. Other classes that are open to the general public are also being planned.
