Sharing Kitchen Wisdom: Designing Culinary Curricula with Community in Mind (NEBHDCo)

Date: Sun, March 25
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

What comes to mind when you hear the terms healthy or nutritious? What does the food look like? How does it taste? For many of us that are people of color living on low to moderate incomes, we think of healthy foods as bland, boring and culturally irrelevant. In this workshop, we will share our process in developing curricula for our culinary classes that is dynamic, delicious and culturally relevant for our community of Bed-Stuy. We aren’t teaching people how to cook healthy. We are sharing skills and knowledge around how food can either heal or harm us and how what passes as good food in our communities is downright criminal.
