We’ll kick off our session with a discussion about what exactly “whole foods” are and why they are the gateway to a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle. Kim will demonstrate some easy and manageable food prep ideas for any experience level. By focusing on local and seasonal foods, you’ll learn to enjoy cooking simple and quality meals with your senses – and without a recipe.

Teacher: Kim Calichio of The Connected Chef
