DWS in the News: Wellness at Waldorf's Global Cooking on Fox 2 Detroit
The Detroit Waldorf School's Wellness at Waldorf program, now in our second year, continues to grow in support of our school's community health and nutrition initiatives! In addition to last year's popular cooking and nutrition workshops, wellness talks and yoga classes, we have added an after school cooking course to compliment our current programming.
Led by local chef, James Jasionowski, this six-week course touched on global cuisine spanning the continents from East to West mirroring our students' curriculum and studies while introducing countries and cultures that are important to the fabric of our Detroit neighborhoods and residents including Syria, Korean, France, and the Middle East.
As soon as the course was announced, the class was full within days and a waitlist quickly formed. Our families and staff were not the only ones excited by learning about cuisine from around the globe, as the media quickly took notice as well! Fox 2 Detroit recently invited chef James, Wellness at Waldorf coordinator Katherine Feldhouse and several students to discuss the program and share our favorite recipe for bibimbap on air during a Saturday morning cooking segment!
We had such a wonderful time, and look forward to our wellness event on November 3rd with chef James as we create a space to learn about global cuisine and techniques to cook together as a family. We invite you to join us from 5-6PM on the 3rd, and encourage you to RSVP today as space is limited.
