The second class will be from 2-4 p.m. on Feb. 10.

Fertile Feast: How to Eat Deliciously while You’re Trying to Conceive will feature reproductive endocrinologist Angela Thyer and dietitian Judy Simon and the class will learn to prepare a tasty winter meal while learning tips on food, fertility, and cooking in the school’s nutrition kitchen.
