What you'll learn in this healthy cooking class:

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Amy Klassman, will teach you the benefits of The MIND Diet (Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay) which may be associated with slowing down cognitive decline and delaying Alzheimer's disease onset.  Not only does it promote brain health, it also has the potential to lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, and aid in weight loss. Created in conjunction with RUSH University of Chicago, this diet promotes increased consumption of antioxidants (through berries, green leafy vegetables, and 1 glass of wine per day) and decreased consumption (not total elimination!) of saturated foods.  Learn the principles of this diet that could potentially knock out memory loss for millions of people.

Menu:

  • Cannellini Bean, Farro, and Spinach Soup with Toasted Whole Grain Bread Croutons
  • Za'tar and Turmeric Pan Seared Trout
  • Mediterranean Quinoa Pilaf with Garlic, Parsley, Dill and Olives
  • Berries with Toasted Rye and Oat Crumble Topping

Skills covered in class:

  • Understanding the MIND diet
  • Incorporating whole grains and legumes into your diet
  • Getting familiar with Mediterranean ingredients
  • Preparing croutons
  • Working with fresh herbs and spices
  • Selecting and pan searing fish
  • Determining fish doneness
  • Understanding the benefits of omega-3
  • Making streusel topping
