Our mission is to inspire fresh ideas for delicious natural cooking and healthy living with fun, informative classes.

PCC Cooks staff
L-R: Marilyn McCormick, PCC Cooks Manager; Alicia Guy, PCC Cooks Program Specialist; Jackie DeCicco, PCC Cooks Writer; and Lena Hart-Bundy, PCC Cooks Program Specialist.

PCC cooks began in 1983 as an educational and nutritional program called FoodWorks, introducing our members and shoppers to using a wide variety of natural products in home cooking. We have grown to five fully equipped teaching kitchens offering more than 1,000 classes a year.

Every season our goal is to bring you the topics you want in an entertaining format, using easy techniques for making delicious meals. Instructors add a sprinkling of culinary history, a dash of personal experiences, and a passion for sharing great food.

Program manager Marilyn McCormick began teaching in 1994, and moved into the lead role in 2001. PCC Cooks writer Jackie DeCicco, and program specialists Alicia Guy and Lena Hart-Bundy — along with more than 50 professional chefs and instructors and 200 assistants — round out our talented team.
