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