Does boiling vegetables decrease their nutrition content? What vegetables have Vitamin A? How do I cook this funny looking vegetable? Last week our new cohort of Kitchen of Champions trainees learned the answers as they began Cooking Matters with the help of our community partner 18 reasons.
Cooking Matters is a national curriculum that teaches the skills, knowledge and confidence to make healthy and affordable meals. The curriculum is implemented with the help of volunteer culinary and nutrition experts, like the crew from 18 Reasons. 18 Reasons is a nonprofit that brings people together to deepen relationships to food and to create a just and sustainable food system.
The crew from 18 Reasons will work with the Cohort several times during the program, so look forward to future posts!
