Virtual cooking class to support Acton’s Household Goods

Staff Writer | Wicked Local

Rachel Amiralian and Gavin Lambert, co-founders of WECO Hospitality.

In support of Household Goods, a Zoom cooking lesson will be held on Thursday, Nov. 12 with WECO Hospitality Chef Gavin Lambert, who will walk participants through making a delicious meal and provide advice on wine pairings.

Household Goods mission is to provide a full range of furniture and household items, free of charge, to help people in need make a home. All proceeds for the night of cooking with this accomplished chef will go to support that mission.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and will last for approximately 60-75 minutes. Participants who want to cook along with Gavin will receive a shopping list in advance and basic recipe outlines. Ticket holders can either purchase the grocery basket directly from WECO (limited quantities) or shop on their own. Or just watch and learn from Gavin and make the dishes at a later date.

The cost is $30 and tickets may be purchased at
