Learning Healthy Alternatives: NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital

By February 14, 2018March 16th, 2022In the City, Recipes

Through a partnership with NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, The Sylvia Center teaches cooking classes to young people and their families who are affected by Celiac.  This unique partnership allows for families to learn how to cook with healthy alternatives so that participants can add more healthful ingredients to their meals.  Learning to cook new alternatives allows young people to have a more enjoyable meal time with their families.  Participants cook and share a meal together at the end of class, while also exploring how eating healthy alternatives can affect their ongoing management of disease, and sometimes, even help with recovery from surgery and medical care.

Our veteran Chef Instructor, Kristen McCormick, has been carefully tailoring each cooking class to fit the specific needs of children and their families. In the last class, students prepared Vegan Stir-Fried Udon Noodles and Vegan Coconut-Lime Ice Cream. Job well done, Kristen! We are so proud to have you on our culinary team.
