Cooking Skill Workshops

ChefWhat would you do if you could enlist the help of a professional chef who is also an expert in healthful cooking?

Well, today is your lucky day. You really can get the help of a chef who trained at the Culinary Institute of America and who has spent over 20 years developing amazing techniques and innovative ideas to improve cooking skills and freshen up old approaches.

Me.

That’s right! I’ve decided to start offering continuing education programs for dietitians, family and consumer science instructors, public health employees, and culinary art educators.

This new program will begin with cooking demonstrations. With these demos, you will encounter strategies to improve your skills and freshen your ideas. I know how to engage a crowd, navigate logistics, and prepare delicious food safely, all without breaking a sweat. Why not take advantage of this expertise while expanding your repertoire? I love answering questions and promise to put on a dynamic presentation that will leave you feeling energized and inspired!

You can get all the details in the free handout below. Plus, even if you’re not interested in expanding your skill set, this flyer is full of great cooking demonstration ideas and ways to explore new techniques on your own.

News Update: Gluten Labels

One year ago today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) set out a final rule about which foods could and could not use the “gluten-free” label.

Help Kids Eat Right

Happy August! Did you know that this month is the very first Kids Eat Right Month? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Academy Foundation have created a new children’s health and nutrition education campaign, and it comes in the form of Kids Eat Right Month. According to Terri Raymond, RDN and chair of the Academy Foundation, “As children head back to school in August, Kids Eat Right Month will reinforce our program’s core messages of shopping smart, cooking healthy and eating right. By following these principles, we can help ensure children are healthy, succeed in school and grow into healthy adults.”
