Demonstration Teaching Kitchen

The goal of the Demonstration Kitchen is to provide individuals with the opportunity to engage in hands-on education in the state-of-the art demonstration kitchen.

The overall objective is to teach culinary skills so they can make practical dietary changes to improve their health and transfer these newly acquired skills to their home kitchen.
