Edible Education 101 Culinary Literacy, Nutrition and Medicine- with Cooking Demo




It was such an honor to present at Edible Education 101, a unique food systems course at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Edible Education 101 course was created in conjunction with the 40th-anniversary celebration of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, California. Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse and the Edible Schoolyard Project, launched the course in partnership with the University of California, Berkeley.

Edible Education 101 is a hybrid public lecture series and for-credit class. It has been offered to undergraduate students and members of the public for nine semesters since 2011.

The panel I presented in was on the allied topics of culinary literacy, nutrition and medicine– all of which are aimed at teaching people how to make better food choices and learn to cook at home with the goal of improved health and wellbeing.

While Covid-19 made this a virtual experience, it was all recorded, so please watch the video, and learn how to shop, store, and cook for your health while we’re sheltering in place, and hopefully learn new skills that you can continue to use when we emerge from this epidemic.  See the previous post for the detailed resource guide I made for the class.  All lectures are recorded, so please also visit the archives for some amazing sessions.



Eat well, be well!
