Price $155.00

The holiday season is a special time of year, with food being a huge part of the celebration. Healthy eating doesn’t have to go by the wayside, but nutritious meals don’t have to be dull and boring either. James Beard nominated cookbook author Ann Ogden Gaffney believes that good food is delicious food. The fact that it’s a healthier choice should seem like an afterthought. Ann’s cookbook COOK for Your Life takes its name from Ann’s same-named organization that provides patients and families affected by cancer with therapeutic cooking skills and techniques that she herself learned during her own fight against breast cancer. Ann’s programs have received funding from the National Institutes of Health and have been embraced by medical institutions at Columbia University, Mount Sinai, American Cancer Society and more. Using recipes from her book, Ann will prepare a festive holiday meal that hits all the high notes while providing easy hacks that will help you combine real eating pleasure with great nutrition all year round. Ann’s from-the-sea feast includes grilled shrimp and leek salad; Spanish tapas style cod with chickpeas and peppers; slow baked fish with lemon and capers, cauliflower puree and endive and watercress salad; and for dessert, honey roasted plums with  mascarpone. A copy of "Cook for Your Life" is included in the class.
