Cooking for a Cause! – CPTC Foundation’s 14th Annual Scholarship Celebration kicks off with live international cooking classes

September 28, 2020

Clover Park Technical College Foundation is holding its 14th Annual Scholarship Celebration virtually. The virtual event will include a week-long silent auction from October 13-20, a virtual raise the paddle, and a choice of three live cooking classes taught by international chefs around the world, all to support scholarships and emergency assistance through the Foundation.

To kick off this exciting event, the CPTC Foundation has partnered with The Table Less Traveled to offer tickets to virtual cooking classes. Three classes will be offered and taught by an international chef live from Japan, Peru, and Portugal. Participants can still enjoy dinner (or can just grab a glass of wine and watch) but will get the added fun of learning how to make the signature dishes from the comfort of their own kitchens. Space is limited to 20 participants in each class, and registration is open now at

Register for one or more of the following classes:

Cook along with Chef Tomoko live in Osaka, Japan to learn how to make gyoza - mouthwatering, crunchy, crispy pan-fried dumplings. Class will be held on October 13, 2020 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. PST.

Learn how to make one of Peru's most famous dishes, lomo saltado - a beef and vegetable stir-fry complete with Peruvian accompaniments. Cook along with Chef Nacho live in Peru. Class will be held on October 15, 2020 from 5:00-6:30 p.m. PST.

If brunch is more your style, join us to learn how to make pastel de nata - a creamy, caramelized egg custard nestled in a crispy, flaky pastry. Class will be held October 17, 2020 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. PST.

All classes will be provided with an ingredient list in advance, and an exclusive live link to log on for the event. Participants can sign up for all three if they are interested or purchase a link as a gift for someone else.

“Scholarships awarded through the CPTC Foundation make a difference in the lives of our students; and for many it’s the tipping point that provides that extra support which enables them to stay in school and pursue their dreams for a challenging career,” says Dr. Joyce Loveday, CPTC President.

This event is sponsored by Harkness Furniture, Badgley + Phelps Wealth Management, and WSECU. Proceeds from this event make it possible for the CPTC Foundation to provide scholarships, emergency assistance, and vital support to CPTC and its students.
