The Southern Food & Beverage Museum (SoFAB) and the Meraux Foundation are excited to announce the return of SoFAB’s popular Cookbook Creation Class. Thanks to the generous support of the Meraux Foundation, the class will be offered free of charge. The cookbook creation class offers participants the opportunity to learn how to produce a cookbook in a step-by-step way.
At the end of the program, the participants will have the knowledge and skills needed to develop their own cookbook for self-publishing or digital distribution. The class is taught by SoFAB Founder and multi-cookbook author Liz Williams (pictured), with help from specialists in food photography and design.
“Our cookbook creation class has been one of our most popular offerings since SoFAB opened nearly 15 years ago,” said Liz Williams, SoFAB founder and teacher of the cookbook class. “It’s very exciting to bring the program to our library in St. Bernard Parish and to have the support of the Meraux Foundation so that we can make the class accessible to anyone in the community.”
The class is free but spots are limited to 40 people. Refreshments served at each class. Single session sign-ups are not available and participants are encouraged to attend each session.
WHEN: Classes will take place from 10AM - NOON and will be offered at the SoFAB Research Center at Nunez Community College. The class is structured as a 4-session program, and during each session a different element of cookbook production is discussed and explored.
