Cooking for Life

Hands-on cooking class

Healthy eating begins with healthy cooking, but where do you start?

Start with Cooking for Life.

This hands-on cooking class from Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula is designed to teach you how to prepare simple, healthy, and delicious meals.

Working alongside Community Hospital’s executive chef, participants will:

  • Create a balanced meal that can be easily duplicated at home
  • Learn nutrition basics from one of our expert registered dietitians
  • Learn knife skills — how to use them and sharpening and cleaning guidance
  • Understand ServSafe® food-handling techniques to prevent food-borne illness
  • Take home recipe cards with ingredients, instructions, and nutritional analysis

Our chef will first prepare the meal; participants then break into small groups to prepare it themselves.

Classes are held in the Family and Consumer Science Kitchen at Monterey Peninsula College.
