Ever wonder where your food comes from? What goes into it? And what do all those terms on the label really mean? Let’s talk science. Join us as we explore the journey that your food takes on its way from the farm to your fork. Each monthly session will provide an overview of agricultural production, selection tips, and cooking techniques. Classes will conclude with an opportunity to sample some tasty recipes, and take home recipe copies and printed materials.
This month, it’s all about the small but mighty egg. Eggs can be a wholesome, healthy, and affordable part of any diet. In this class, participants will follow the journey that an egg takes from the chicken to the kitchen. Along the way, we will learn the basics of good chicken husbandry, better understand the importance of food safety, and explore healthy ways to incorporate eggs into your cooking. The class includes printed material, recipes, and tasty samples. Taught by UF/IFAS Extension faculty JK Yarborough, Agriculture agent, and dietitian Virgilia Zabala.
This program is presented by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
