The desire to eat healthy and knowing how to do it are two very different things. Hoping to inspire confidence in the kitchen, a local team of healthcare and culinary professionals created the Yum Yum Club, a series of community cooking classes. The fun culinary series was developed by Florida Hospital Waterman’s Creation Health team to provide hands-on cooking demonstrations led by a professional chef and registered dietitian. Covering the basics of a well-balanced meal, each class will have a different focus of easy-to-prepare, healthy recipes for either breakfasts, lunches, dinners or desserts. Students will learn tips on how to make every meal fun, delicious and nutritious.
“Eating healthy is important to maintaining overall wellness,” said Candace Huber, the hospital’s Community Health Transformation Specialist for its Creation Health Center. “We developed the Yum Yum Club to show the community they have the ability to cook healthy, tasty meals.”
In addition to professional cooking instruction, participants will receive cooking utensils, food-tasting, and recipes. Classes will be held in the Conry Creation Health Center Demonstration Kitchen on September 12, September 26, October 10, and October 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. Each class costs $30 per adult, or $90 for all four. Space is limited and registration is required. Contact Candace Huber at 352-253-3685 to register.
