COOKING WITH WHOLE FOODS FOR HEALTH AND SELF-DEVELOPMENT
Why be satisfied with a tiny fraction when you could have the whole? Why deprive yourself of something that is at hand and can change your life?
Breaking the vicious circle of our impoverished modern diets and fast-paced lifestyles, this course will introduce students to the marvelous richness of whole foods: their wonderful healing properties, along with a variety of cooking methods that are simple and highly effective at the same time.
Bringing together the best of Western and Eastern science, this course will deliver information and recipes based on the latest findings of Western style nutritional and medical research as well as on the energetic view of food developed by traditional Chinese Medicine.
Students will be provided with a complete overview of whole foods and clear descriptions on how to create the best dishes for different specific conditions (age, lifestyle, level of activity, health issues, etc.) following the rhythm of the seasons, and according to different places and climates where people live.
During classes that combine demonstrations and hands-on sessions, students will learn how to choose, cook and combine the highest quality foods, making meals that are not only healthy and balanced, but also full of flavors and very satisfying for the palate.
Students will find here a cooking class and much more: while learning about new foods and ways to feed our body, they will be able to experiment how food can also affect our mind and bring a positive change to the general attitude towards life.
The lessons take place on Thursdays, February 6th through April 10th
