“Let food be thy medicine” but, what if it’s not the food? What if it’s the process of cooking that can heal us and foster a child’s social-emotional and creative development? Today, a professional chef and a national expert on human and childhood development will lead you through an interactive video breakdown of what is occurring in a child's mind and heart as they navigate their way through a recipe. You too will see the growth that occurs when a child puts on a chef’s hat and gets hands on.
