Green Cooking

June 29-July 2, 2020 | 10 am-Noon & 1-3 pm

Living in the Bay Area, we are surrounded by a seasonal bounty of foods. Help your family make the most of your surroundings by learning to think critically and creatively about the food you eat. Learn to incorporate whole, natural and local foods into everyday cooking. Students will learn to understand the foundations of healthy food and eating—why something is good and how to use it.

Develop habits for healthy living in this one-week mini course. Help your family make the most of your surroundings by learning to think critically and creatively about the food you eat. We will focus on healthy, economical eating, focusing on “everyday” pantry items that most families will have in their homes already. We will decipher nutrition labels, analyze food marketing, and run our own “Chopped-style” competition. We will also discuss the important role that food and meals play in bringing people together, even when we are sheltering apart. You will receive a short ingredient list the week before the class begins so there can be a few items that we all make & experience together.
