About How-to-Cook Family Meals
The Learn-to-Cook Program was produced by Central United Church, Barrie, Ontario with the financial assistance of Toronto United Church Council, who provided seed money from a Centennial Grant Fund, Collier Street United Church, Barrie, Ontario and generous members and friends of Central United Church who believed in the value of this project including filming, editing, design and reproduction of DVDs by Ben Andrews and Joben Productions and the many volunteers who gave freely their time and talents. This is a not-for-profit community outreach project.
Experts with Experience
The narrator, Barbara Munroe, and the demonstrator, Clara Leask, are certified teachers who both practiced in the Ontario Public School System until retirement. Clara taught the Home Economics program in both Elementary and High School. Having always prepared healthy food for her own family, she worries that today's families are losing the art of cooking-at-home. With her practical experience in the classroom combined with her academic credentials Clara has a wealth of invaluable cooking experiences to share.
