The Looking Glass restaurant is now hosting a series of informative, hands-on classes for people of all ages and skill levels. Recently several young culinary-curious folks came out to try their hand at panini making.

Kada Garris is the general manager at The Looking Glass, she talked about this and other upcoming classes.

“These cooking classes were designed to bring the community together and get the kids involved,” Garris said. “So, this is a kid-friendly activity that will let families in Clarksville know more about what we offer here at The Looking Glass.

“We are well known as a couples destination, but we want to attract some of the younger families, and let everyone know that our food and atmosphere is kid-friendly as well. Plus, we are happy to offer a fun activity for the kids in the community, and a chance for them to learn something really cool.”

The kids were shown how to design, build and press their own Panini sandwiches with a variety of meats, cheeses and toppings.

The Looking Glass has already hosted a pizza making class. Coming soon there will be a class on Halloween cookies this month.
