SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

For blueberry enthusiasts across southeast Michigan, a cooking class focusing all on blueberries is taking place this Thursday in Birmingham. Instructor Chef Pam Gustairs dropped by the Fox 2 cooking school to show us what you can expect to make in the class.

In this class you will celebrate the beauty and freshness of home-grown blueberries available in Michigan from mid-July through September. Blueberries are a healthy fruit that can be used to create fabulous appetizers, salads, main courses, side dishes, desserts and more. Join us as we explore the versatility of blueberries when we prepare: Blueberry Compote over Goat Cheese; Blueberry Lemon Bars; a Blueberry Coffee Cake; Chicken with Ginger-Spice Blueberry Compote and more.

The class will take place on Thursday June 28th from 6:30 - 8:30 P.M. at The Community House in Birmingham.
