Chef's Table with Margaret Kuo's

On Wednesday, February 20 at 11:30 AM we will celebrate Chinese New Year. We will be welcoming the chef of Margaret Kuo’s into the Center for a cooking demonstration and specially prepared lunch. 2019 is The Year of the Pig. You are a Pig if you were born in 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, or 2007. Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life. Pigs are diligent, compassionate, and generous. They have great concentration: once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it. Though Pigs rarely seek help from others, they will not refuse to give others a hand. Pigs never suspect trickery, so they are easily fooled. Their lucky colors are yellow, gray and brown. Numbers 2, 5 and 8 will also bring them luck!

 

Seating is limited so please call the Center to reserve your space. The cost for each Chef’s Table will be $5 for members or $10 for non-members.
