I hosted the first of two "Cooking in the Garden" events on July 27 from 11am to 1pm. A total of 5 families attended with their children, or on their own, and we prepared pineapple rind tea, pineapple and basil salsa, chickpea tuna salad, and oatmeal banana bars. We also enjoyed a fresh herb, bread crisps and feta cheese platter together. As a dietitian, I shared nutrition information on cooking for your family while saving time, reducing waste, and lowering costs in the kitchen. We exchanged great tips on food storage, cooking techniques, and recipe favourites. The children who were spanning the elementary school years from Grade 1 to Grade 6, participated in the cooking demo and took charge, which was wonderful to see. One of my participants, a newcomer to Canada from the Ukraine, travelled a long distance to join our event, which was a true compliment and honour.

Here are some testimonials:

"I really liked Dani's Master Class. She talked about the benefits of healthy eating,{…} she gave me a lot of cooking tips. We tasted many different herbs grown in her garden {…} and the children took part in the cooking. They were interested, and they ate everything they cooked with great pleasure. Later at home, I immediately prepared her salad according to her recipe. Healthy eating is the key to a happy life." – Yuliana

"You were such a great influence on my daughter; she came home and made me a dish with bananas for me." – Mehrnaz

"My kids learned so much from you, Dani." – Maryam
