|Participants learned knife skills and the importance|
of a well balanced diet during the first class of the series.
Perfect for a cold and rainy Tuesday night, our menu consisted of turkey chili with vegetables, accompanied by some warm confetti cornbread and Northwest apple salad. As apples are a seasonal fruit, participants learned about the importance of shopping in season to make the most of every dollar at the grocery store. We also focused on the importance of eating a well-balanced diet and label reading to make healthy food choices. Over the next five weeks, participants will continue to build their nutrition knowledge and gain valuable cooking experience.
