Attention: Learn To Cook Family Meals DVD Program
If I donate to the project, how is the money used?
Donations are used to offset the production costs of the DVD, to support marketing efforts and to allow us to distribute copies to organizations or people where need may exceed the ability to pay the full price for the product.
Can I view samples of the Videos?
Yes. The the videos are all available through this site in the "Cookbooks & Video" section.
Can I buy just one of the DVDs?
No. Production costs are too high for individual discs and booklets. You can download the video and the book sections from the website free of charge.
What skill level are the DVDs targeted at?
The DVDs are ideal for the novice cook but even experienced cooks benefit from learning some new simple techniques for food preparation, shopping tips and nutritional facts.
Are the DVDs appropriate for children?
Children enjoy watching the DVD demonstrations and will soon be telling their meal-maker how it should be done. However, these are family meals and children will need parents to lead and assist them with many of the tasks.
If I buy the 7 DVDs, does it come with the cook book?
Yes. It's a deal!
Can the cookbook be purchased alone?
Yes. Many people do, particularly experienced cooks. Beginner cooks and younger persons are used to learning from pictures. Watching the demonstrations is the next best thing to helping Mother or Grandma prepare meals and learning from their knowledge and experience.
