A Taste of Culinary Nutrition from Around the Globe
Join us for a brand new series focused on Global Cuisine! We welcome RDNs, health professionals, chefs and nutrition students to participate in a series of hands-on workshops covering a selection of food cultures from around the world through the lens of culinary nutrition. We hope this is the first of many more series to come as we continue to diversify our plates and our palates and most importantly, enhance our knowledge as practitioners of a diverse population.
A ticket to this series includes registration to 9 interactive culinary workshops held weekly in February and March, worth 17 CEUs.
Each session will be led by a different chef/RDN who will present important aspects of their food heritage in a cook-along style demonstration for participants (cooking along is optional). Presenters will cover key ingredients and food traditions, as well as concrete recommendations for healthy recipe modifications without compromising the cultural significance of the dish.
All sessions will be held LIVE on Zoom and will be recorded for those that are not able to join for some or all of the actual event. Like our annual conference, recipes will be shared in advance and there will be lots of goodies and prizes for those that register!
