My mission comes most alive when I meet with individuals and groups face-to-face to provide hands-on instruction.
Of these experiences, the most gratifying is when I have the opportunity to work with children (and in many cases, their parents). By exposing them to ingredients and teaching them simple techniques, I feel I am empowering them for a lifetime of home cooking.
It was, therefore, with great pleasure that I provided a culinary demo this week for Healthy in Hialeah. In the process of learning how to make Guacamole and Black Bean, Roasted Poblano & Corn Salsa, these children (and their parents) realized the ease with which they could utilize the bounty of flavors and colors that are available to make healthy, home-cooked food.
I’m thrilled to be associated with these efforts and look forward to continuing to empower food-lovers everywhere to make their own recipes.
