The Southborough Senior Center is holding more special events in its kitchen this spring. The Center is hosting two overlapping cooking demonstration series. One focuses on the culinary arts with guest chefs. The other is run by the center’s nutritionist to guide seniors on easy, healthy options.

First up next week is treat – “Dessert for Two”. It’s part of the chef demos by the Culinary Underground through May.

The following week features a holdover from March that was cancelled due to a storm. Nutritionist Karen White will demonstrate how to make “Oats in a Jar“.

The sessions then shift back to the Culinary Underground series for the remainder of the month.

Then, in June, the kitchen will again host White with more demos focusing on ways to jazz up simple and healthy options for lunches and dinners.

There is a suggested donation for each class of $3. For each of the sessions, seniors need to sign up, since room in the kitchen is limited. Stop by the center’s front desk or call 508-229-4453.

Here’s the schedule:
