The Seaway Valley Health Centre is Pleased to Announce More Cooking Courses Coming Read on for all the details and the poster link.  A group of youth and older adults recently completed the first six-week session of the Cooking Circle and the ratings showed it was a delicious success. With local restaurateur and professional chef, Christian Barque, working alongside Seaway Valley Community Health Centre’s Registered Dietitian, Jessica McLeod, the two experts in their respective fields teamed up to coach youth and older adults on the art of cooking.
Christian and Jessica supported older adults as they mentored youth, transferring years of culinary expertise and knowledge from one generation to another. While everyone benefited from learning about new foods and cooking techniques, the youth turned the tables by teaching older adults on the use of technology, including navigation on Facebook and downloading apps for phones. Participation in this inter-generational program also allowed the youth to collect the community services hours required for high school graduation. A win-win for everyone!
A sampling of some of the recipes prepared included butternut squash soup, an artisan pizza and gazpacho. All participants indicated that as a result of this program, they were introduced to and tried new foods such as arugula, endives, anchovy and palm hearts.
In partnership with Boys and Girls Club and TR Leger Immigrant Services, Seaway Valley Community Health Centre will run its next session in September 2014. If this sounds appetizing to you as a youth or as an older adult, call to register for the next session by contacting Seaway Valley Community Health Centre at 613-936-0306 x229. Kindly check the Cooking Circle Poster.
