About the event
DYK: Walnuts are the only nut with an excellent source of the plant-based omega-3 ALA (2.5g/oz), an essential fatty acid that may play a role in heart health?1 They are also certified by the American Heart Association® with the Heart-Check mark, per one ounce serving.2
Our winter workshop kicks off the new year and brings the latest food trends to life through culinary application and the latest heart health research featuring walnuts – just in time for American Heart Month. Join the Culinary Nutrition Collaborative to learn how to make two unique recipes with walnuts that will feature the latest heart health research and highlight how you can leverage two new food trends for 2023 in your cooking. The two trends will feature the reinvention of retro foods through the lens of the wellness-conscious consumer and the fusion of flavors to create new ones...have you heard of “swicy”?! Recipes will include: Swicy Pineapple-Walnut Sheet Pan Dinner and California Walnuts Meatless Meatballs.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to win a Le Creuset Baking Dish, pair of Silpat Nonstick Baking Mats, and an Eat the Science apron along with other walnut goodies ($200 value total!).
