Event Types :
In honor of this month’s National Gumbo Day, celebrate the flavors of Cajun cooking with Chef Collette Haw.

With its roots in French cuisine and rich, robust flavors derived from the tradition of Southern cooking along the Louisiana bayous, authentic Cajun food is easily made healthy if you know what swaps to make and spices to use. In honor of this month’s National Gumbo Day, celebrate the flavors of Cajun cooking – and learn how to put a heathy spin on without sacrificing any of the flavor – alongside Chef Collette in the CHWB Nutrition Theatre.

This is a demonstration-style cooking program, so prepare to sit back, relax and let our chef prepare the meal while you enjoy the delicious items. While attending this program, participants will receive a booklet for the following recipes:

  • Red Beans
  • Dirty Rice
  • Gumbo
  • Hoppin’ John

 

This program is presented by Chef Collette Haw and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Program Presenter

Chef Collette Haw is a classically trained Culinary Institute of America graduate. With a passion for seasonal, sustainable cooking, Chef Haw approaches her cooking with a passion for blending comfort-food-gone-healthy and ‘food as medicine’ philosophies. Chef Haw spent several years operating her own successful meal delivery service out of Longwood—Collette’s Clean Eats—and as a private chef to a celebrity family in Atlanta before launching Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen at the Center for Health & Wellbeing. For its first three years in operation, she created the café’s beloved seasonal menus.

Now a new mom, Chef Haw is returning to her passion of recipe development for local businesses and organizations in Central Florida. You will also find her a familiar face at the Center for Health & Wellbeing via her popular online series, Small Bites with Chef Collette.
