Cooking With Chef Emily
We like to incorporate skill building activities in the men’s routine and one of the men’s favorite gatherings is the culinary class that we offer each month. We realize these much-needed life skills will help the men to not only develop a practice of self-care but prepare them for independence once they transition out.
At Bodhi Casa we believe in the connection between mind and body, which is why we keep our house fully stocked with organic, high quality food. Our Chef, Emily loves to share her passion of cooking with the men. As an exceptional teacher, Emily helps the men to build the necessary skills required for budgeting, planning, organizing and ultimately preparing healthy snacks and nutritious meals.
Here are other skills the men learn from culinary class:
- Following instructions.
- Learning good nutrition and eating habits.
- Learning good manners.
- Learning about health issues from eating food such as sugar and how it is related to obesity.
- Interest and knowledge of food.
- Building connection
