Welcome to the Y’s Simple Cooking with Heart Beginner Class. Throughout the next 5 weeks, we will be coaching you through various cooking skills, from knife skills to braising meats. This curriculum was created by the American Heart Association.
Every Monday, we’ll release a new class, where 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! Follow us at YMCA DC Food and show us what your cooking #YMCACommunityTable.
