Chartwells and ACU Dining began conducting Teaching Kitchen classes to encourage students to prepare healthy meals at home.
The classes started last semester and will continue to be offered once a month going forward.
Cody Johnson, executive chef for catering, will instruct those in attendance how to cook the food, while Dietitian Specialist Lindsay Arthur will commentate with information regarding health benefits of the food choices or food preparation techniques. Each class will focus on a different theme.
“Teaching Kitchen is a program that has been seen successful across the country, so we are excited we were able to bring it to ACU,” Arthur said.
The cooking class is open to all students, faculty and staff. Despite being free, the cooking class is still on a first come, first serve basis.
“Teaching Kitchen is a great way to develop your skill set with hands-on learning from one of our executive chefs,” Arthur said. “We encourage those of all levels to join to see how you can make healthy, yet delicious, foods. It’s a fun time to be had.”
The classes started last semester and Teaching Kitchen is anticipating an even larger turnout per class this semester. Individuals with all levels of cooking knowledge are encouraged to attend the class.
