MANCHESTER CENTER - Summer barbeques and pubs sizzle and entice people with foods fresh off the grill.

Unfortunately, the hamburger, a summer staple, is a red meat treat that should be enjoyed sparingly.

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning is here to help. Join us on Sunday, June 22, from 4-7 p.m. at Equinox Village for a special summer culinary experience, "Cooking with Superfoods: A Healthified Version of a Burger and Fries."

Tom Festa, the executive chef of Equinox Village, will show how a few simple switches -- salmon for beef, sweet potatoes for potatoes -- can transform a favorite pub-menu indulgence(s) into a satisfying and nutrition-packed meal. Attendees will even learn a healthy and delicious no-fail dessert. A seated dinner with wine will follow the class.

Seating is limited. Those planning to attend should reserve a space. The cost is $45 per person and people can register online at www.greenmtnacademy.org or call Karen Dreiblatt at 802-867-0111.
