Finding the time to eat well, let alone cook from scratch, can be hard; keeping it affordable doesn’t make it any easier. But there is an easy way have high quality food while saving time, money AND making it fun: cook big batches with a group of people.
Nutritionist and personal trainer Kyle Byron, together with Dep founder Len Senater, will lead this fun, hands-on workshop. You will learn how to make simple, healthy, delicious meals from scratch, and leave with several take-home meals ready to eat or freeze.
We’ll be working with quality, ethically-raised local meats from Sanagan’s Meat Locker and organic seasonal vegetables from Fresh City Farms. Along the way, you’ll learn about food safety and knife skills, as well as lots of useful tips on making healthy choices, and saving time and money in the kitchen.
The class includes a shared meal at the end with all the participants — a great way to have fun and meet like-minded people — and a 30-minute presentation exploring healthy eating topics like portioning, nutrition and weight loss.
Menu: Tex-Mex Chili con Carne and Meaty Italian Ragu
Working with lean ground beef, we’ll make two hearty, versatile dishes that are easy, affordable and freeze really well. Menu also includes cornbread & coleslaw
