KIDS Cooking Adventure
A kids cooking and tasting class that focuses on a healthy, plant-based diet. Each class will focus on a different group of fruits and vegetables. Class will start with tasting different types of plant foods and learning about their different health benefits. Students will then prepare one or two dishes while learning basic cooking skills. Students will record the ethnic dishes they prepare in a “Food Passport,” which they can use beyond the class to continue their food adventure. The class will be taught by Nimali Fernando, MD, pediatrician and healthy food enthusiast, with the help of chefs and other experienced cooks. Students will also be exposed to lessons about local food buying and growing. (Parents are asked to drop off their kids and return for a tasting at the end of class).
