A series of classes called "In a Hot Minute," based on a cookbook Julian Brunt and Kim Wilson are writing. The cookbook is designed for people on the go, who want to feed their families interesting and healthy food, but do not have the time, budget or perhaps culinary skills to achieve what they would like.

Each class will have a general topic, such as store-bought rotisserie chicken, and will present at least four different recipes relating to the topic. Each recipe can be completely accomplished in less than 30 minutes, in most cases and will require only basic kitchen skills. We will also do our best to use local and seasonal ingredients, such as Delta Blues Rice and Sandridge Farm pork. 

This class will feature four recipes using rice and the rice cooker.
