Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives, Cooking for Wellness – The Basics is a 4-week course held on the St. Paul campus designed to help you develop healthy cooking and eating strategies that can be used for years to come. Our culinary educators use hands-on demonstrations to teach foundational techniques to adapt your cooking for a healthier lifestyle and greater well-being. There are four weekly on-site classes held in the cooking laboratories on the St. Paul campus, and three self-directed cooking assignments to be completed at home during the week.
Students will learn knife skills, how to prepare sauces and condiments, stocks and soups, how to include fresh produce, whole grains and healthful proteins to make delicious and nourishing meals. Each laboratory session convenes with a community meal prepared by the participants. Culinary educators with expertise in nutrition science and culinary arts teach all Cooking for Wellness classes. Basic cooking skills are helpful but not necessary to successfully complete this class.
Winter Session A begins: Thursday evenings, January 19 - February 9, 5:45pm - 7:45pm.
**THIS CLASS IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE UMN TWIN CITIES CAMPUS**
Those who complete six of the seven lessons (attend four labs and three home assignments) will earn 50 wellness points and receive a reimbursement of $200 toward the $210 course fee (The $200 reimbursement is available only to University employees covered by the UPlan Medical plan.)
