Spring cooking is a time for celebration, an occasion to remind ourselves that all living things – like our bodies and the healthful, fresh ingredients we fuel our bodies with – are in constant states of renewal and rejuvenation. Join chef and culinary nutrition educator Jenny Breen as she demonstrates how to prepare two spring inspired dishes: Spring Mushroom and Spinach Risotto and Vietnamese Style Spring Rolls.

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

  • two healthful new recipes;
  • how food contributes to your health and wellbeing;
  • how healthy food and cooking should and can be easy, accessible, fun and delicious.

This program is presented by Chef Jenny Breen and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
