St. Charles Chef Teacher and Students Cook Up Tasty, Hearty and Healthy Demo
On 12th November, 2015 Chef Vijay Jos, along with the Chef Training Program students organised a Healthy Cooking Food Demo at St Helen’s center located within McQuesten Community Center. They service clients from the Neighbourhood Food Bank, which receives fresh produce from Hamilton Victory Gardens.
Chef Vijay and the students prepared a recipe based on the items in the garden and the food box and demonstrated how to prepare a hearty and healthy meal. Atendees were treated to Roasted Root Vegetables with Pasta and Tomato Sauce. As an added bonus, the same vegetables and pasta were used in combination with crunchy vegetables to turn it into a light and flavourful pasta and root vegetable salad.
The clients were able to interact and ask questions regarding cooking procedures, food combination, etc. In the end everyone was able to enjoy a sampling of the hot pasta and pasta salad.
