Plaza Voices: World Cup

Carlos celebrates Brazil's score with his friends.

Every four years, billions of people tune in to watch countries from around the globe compete in the World Cup, one of the largest international tournaments outside of the Olympics.

Chef Shellie Kark has been teaching people how to cook at Fresh City Life for four years now, and there's a reason for that. Many people can churn out a delicious feast, but instructing others how to do so is an art form all its own, and that's where Shellie excels.
