CWC

Cooking with a Chef (CWC) is a hands-on, nutrition education program that provides an intense learning experience to help boost the nutrition knowledge as wells as cooking confidence of participants. The program is divided into five delicious and nutritious sessions entitled “Make Menu Planning Easy,” “Color the Plate with Fruits and Vegetables,” “Fruits and Vegetables for a Family for a Week,” “Flavor and Nutrition on the Menu,” and “Get Savvy in the Market.” Through the exquisite pairing of a chef with a nutrition educator, topics such as knife skills, basic cooking methods, ways to incorporate more whole grains, flavor combinations that help lower sodium intake, and how to use balance and variety when creating menus are brought to life in an enjoyable, easy to comprehend manner. However, this program is not all talk; participants get to assist in preparation of recipes like Fresh Fruit Crunch, Baked Meatballs, Tropical Coleslaw and Navy Bean Chowder.
