Life Chef in the Community

Hi Y'all! Here's some quick and tasty info about your friendly neighborhood Life Chef...

I'll be leading a FREE chef's demonstration at the Green Market in Piedmont Park this Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m. to noon. It's a great way for those of you who missed "The Thrill of the Grill" class at Saint Philip AME earlier this month to pick up some healthful and delicious recipes for marinades, dry rubs and side dishes that are all bursting with flavor and nutrients!

This FREE event is sponsored by Kaiser Permanente. For details, directions and more info click here: http://www.piedmontpark.org/programs/GM_Chef.html
"Green Market 2008 Spread out along the dogwood-lined streets of Atlanta's Piedmont Park, Green Market is an open-air farmer's market featuring locally grown produce, artisan cheeses, fresh cut flowers and natural merchandise. With its come as you are, laid-back attitude, Green Market encourages sustainable communities in the most basic way -- by providing shoppers with direct access to local farmers and merchants. It's as simple as that."**********************************************************

Also I wanted to thank everyone who attended FUNFEST '08 hosted by the Children's Wellness Network last weekend at the Frazer Center. We had a ball, and despite taciturn weather, the turnout was great and we actually enjoyed tons of fun under the sun. The kids made fantastic Shake-a-Salads and everyone loved the succulent organic watermelon that was dished out. Please visit the Children's Wellness Network for more information about the upcoming Conscious Kids summer camp at Panola Mountain Park and more upcoming events.


With Summer nearly upon us, I have lots of classes coming up and I wanted to make sure you guys had a chance to mark your calendars. I'll post detailed information as each event approaches, but here's a quick look at what Life Chef will have to offer in the weeks/months to come. I hope to see you soon!
