Operation Food Search (OFS), a local hunger relief organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger and family food insecurity in the St. Louis bi-state region, will host a School of Cooking and Sharing “Cook, Learn and Share” culinary class event on Sat., Nov. 4 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at OFS’ headquarters located at 1644 Lotsie Blvd.  Each monthly program features a culinary instructor who cooks a special dish for the audience to enjoy while simultaneously learning about OFS programs to alleviate St. Louis’ childhood hunger.

This month’s pasta making program will be led by Retreat Gastropub executive chef Michael Friedman.  He will teach how to make handmade pasta with homemade sauces, as well as pair the dishes with some of his favorite wine choices.  Friedman will start the evening with his freshly made bread and hummus, and he will end the night with his famous bread pudding recipe.

Tickets are $75 per person and include delicious food, class instruction, and wine.  Proceeds will fund cooking and nutrition education programs for children and families throughout the community.  Reservations are required since the program is only open to the first 40 registrants.  To learn more about the Operation Food Search School of Cooking and Sharing or to register for the culinary class, call Operation Food Search at (314) 726-5355 or visit cooklearnshare.org.
