Weekly Cooking Demonstrations Offer Tasty Options for All

. Posted in Events, FPH, Journey to Healthy Aging Blog, News

Mark your calendar for Tuesdays at 2 pm for the “Dishes & Diets” cooking demonstration at Florida Presbyterian Homes. We’ve partnered with Elder Pointe Ministries to provide fresh produce on Mondays at an affordable cost. A cooking demonstration using select produce is then offered on Tuesdays in the Porter McGrath building.

Attendees at Dishes & Diets help prepare ingredients to be used in various quick and easy meals. All cooking demonstrations take place on an induction burner that is cool to the touch — making for a safer cooking environment. Recipes are made available following the demonstration for residents to take and try at home.

“Everyone truly enjoys the sights, smells and flavor of a home-cooked meal prepared right before their eyes,” says Chef Etta Owens, Dean of Residents at Florida Presbyterian Homes. “There are plenty of smiles and empty plates to indicate our residents’ enjoyment of these cooking activities.”

Chef Etta is shown making chicken and rice using a one-pot recipe with the following ingredients: virgin olive oil, green peppers, shredded carrots, roasted red peppers, strawberry onions, scallions, yellow rice, diced chicken and chicken broth.

For more information on Dishes & Diets or to confirm the exact location of these cooking events, contact Chef Etta at 863-577-6027 or by email at eowens@fphi.org.
