Personal chef Chris McClay, known as the Modern Vegan, recently announced a series of cooking classes. I wrote about her personal chef business last summer, and these classes offer a less expensive way to sample her sought-after fare.
Chris tells me the classes are already filling up, but if she needs to she'll add more to accommodate everyone who is interested.
All the classes take place at a private home in Westbrook, and those who sign-up will get directions once they register.
