Food lovers in the area will get a gastronomical treat as District 214 Community Education welcomes the highly acclaimed and internationally trained husband and wife chefs, Susan and Michael Maddox, to its fold.
Susan and Michael Maddox are the former owners and operators of Le Titi de Paris in Arlington Heights and starting on Nov. 1, they will teach the Fall Holiday Starters, Sides and Desserts Cooking Series, three individual classes, through Community Education's Continuing Education program.
The series will feature cooking demonstrations showcasing their very popular fall holiday recipes and knowledge. They will feature generous tastings of featured dishes and will have printed recipes available to take home.
