Chef David is offering the 4-part series on Whole Foods Vegan Cuisine, at the NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids starting next Thursday. Each class can be taken individually or as a series.
Registration is through Kirkwood Continuing Education. Details of the class and links to the other classes in the series are detailed below.
This 4-part class can be taken individually or as a series. We will discover a wealth of techniques and recipes to give flavor to a base of nutritious and healthful foods. The whole foods philosophy maintains that minimal processing maintains nutritional integrity. The vegan philosophy maintains that removing (and at the very least limiting) animal products in the diet is beneficial for the body of the individual and the body of the planet.
The series is split into 4 sections: Vegetables, Beans and Grains, Soy foods, Soups and Sauces, and draws on culinary traditions from around the world.
The vegetarian diet is ideally suited to having vegetables at its center. Using vegetables as a focal point allows us to eat seasonally, and therefore locally, which I maintain being the healthiest way to eat. The range of phytonutrients is wide and varied over the year, fiber and micronutrient content is maintained. Take home recipes will be included and general guidelines discussed.
