Over the course of six weeks this spring, a group of budding chefs visited the West Caldwell Hub on Wednesday nights to take part in The Arc of Essex County’s “Tasty Treats” cooking classes.

The classes included lessons in menu planning and table etiquette as well as the preparation of dishes such as salads, pizza, parfait, pigs in a blanket, tacos, and hoagies.

At the conclusion of the six-week session, participants received graduation certificates while wearing their chef hats before sitting down at a decorated table for the final prepared meal. Each graduate also received his or her own cookbook.
