WHEN you think about the country women's association you immediately think of scones and melting moments, don't you?

Of course we all do, but this is beginning to change with the Queensland country women's association QCWA hosting a series of healthy cooking workshops.

According to St George QCWA secretary, Courtney Turvey, the three workshops are designed to give ladies the chance to refresh and broaden their cooking repertoire.

"The workshops are a state wide initiative facilitated through the QCWA, and are trying to promoting healthy food alternatives,” said Ms Turvey. Classes are also running in Thallon and Dirranbandi.

"The classes are looking at healthy scrumptious alternatives and the workshops will be a social gathering for women,” she said. At the end of the classes, participants will not only be able to eat their cooking but also take it home. St George QCWA President Christine Avery said she was excited about the classes.

"It gives people the chance to learn to make easy and healthy meals.”

This first workshop in St George will be run on Wednesday, and for more information, contact Ms Avery on 07 46 255 460 or email cdavery@bigpond.com.
