Recent Recipes and Upcoming Classes

If you haven't made it out to a Life Chef cooking class or demo recently you've missed out on some great food, fantastic people, and healthy eating. Here are links to recent recipes and at the end I've listed upcoming classes so you don't have to miss out!

I had a fun time on July 26 at the National Black Arts Festival's Art of Healthy Cooking Pavilion and I want to thank everyone who stopped by to sample the Jerk BBQ Chicken and the Red Cabbage and Apple Slaw. If you're looking for the recipes, click the links to find out more.

Also for the folks who joined me on July 19 at the "Gorgeous Summer Produce" class at Saint Philip AME Church, I wanted to put up the recipe for the Stuffed Zucchini Shells which were so yummy. Also here are the links for the Simple Summer Mixed Pepper Medley, which was originated during the July 12 class at Sevananda Natural Foods Co-op.

After a beautiful drive down to Warm Springs Georgia, a held a class with the fantastic crew of the Post Polio Support Group at the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation. What a gorgeous place! I held a class that focused on anti-inflammatory foods and we used ginger, a natural anti-inflammatory in just about every dish! Where here's the Blueberry and Melon Salad recipe, as well as the Ginger Garlic Kale with Portabellas. I'll get that Ginger Lime Glaze that we used on the salmon up soon, as well as that super easy (and super yummy) ginger syrup for the ice cream.
