Welcome to the Y’s Simple Cooking with Heart Class. Below you will find lessons where we coach you through various cooking skills, from knife skills to braising meats. This curriculum was created by the American Heart Association.
In each class, we’ll cover a culinary topic and a nutrition topic, then cook our way through 2-3 recipes. We’ll focus on decreasing salt, fat, and sugar in our cooking by developing bold flavors with herbs and spices. In each class, you will find videos of the nutrition and culinary components, the recipes, skill cards for the skills learned in class, and related recipes to practice at home. Wash those hands and let’s jump in!
