AutismBC Adults Goes: Cooking with Chef Eamonn
July 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us for an online Zoom Cooking class with Chef Eamonn. Cooking and meal prepping is a massive life skill! We can certainly add some good skills and techniques to everyone’s repertoire.
This will be a follow-along and asking questions Zoom session
The goals are:
1. Learning cooking basics, knife skills chopping, what temperatures to cook things on, food prep safety
2. Meal prepping a dish that would be 4-6 servings so that you can easily reheat a meal during the week
3. Introduction to flavours / stepping out of your comfort zone
We will provide
- A grocery list ahead of time so that people could do their own shopping to prepare
- Written instructions (recipe) for the meal that we choose that we will share afterward
- A private recording of the session to rewatch and pause the session
- be able to attend the full session 5-630 PST
- have access to a stove, sharp knife, cutting board, pot, fry pan
- have completed the food shop ahead of time
Space is limited and registration is required ahead of time. This session is intended for autistic adults to connect with each other, learn, and share.
