Cooking Creates Community
Second Saturday of the month at 1:00 pm
Starting in the fall of 2021, the LightHouse Youth Program will be hosting a new series called Cooking Creates Community. This monthly virtual cooking lesson and conversation will be led by LightHouse staff and a rotating guest mentor that is blind or low vision and who has a passion for cooking, baking or anything food related. This class will be a chance for blind and low vision students to learn some basic independent cooking skills at home from cool mentors that may have invaluable wisdom to share about questions students might have, all wile connecting with peers and deepening the connections to their blind and low vision communities both near and far.
Our Cooking Creates Community series will run between an hour and an hour and a half starting at 1:00 pm on the second Saturday of the month. Those that sign-up for the program will be sent via email the list of equipment, supplies, recipes, and the zoom link they will be using for the program. If students can sign up by the 4th of each month LightHouse will mail the ingredients for that month’s recipe to their home.
In October Dr. Hoby Wedler, will kick of the program by sharing his secrets to the best mashed potatoes. By walking us all through his simple recipe and a conversation about how he chooses his seasonings we will make a dish that youth can add to most meals the family can enjoy. Each student that signs up will get cooking supplies as well as Hoby’s new line of seasoning, Happy Paprika, that they can try with this dish or others.
