Free Workshop to Help Restaurants Offer Healthy, Tasty Menu Selections
Wednesday January 18, 2012
The Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement and Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies are partnering to provide a free half-day workshop to show local restaurant owners and chefs that a few small changes can help them create the healthier menu options customers are demanding.
The workshop will be held on Friday, January 20, from 9 a.m. to noon at Sullivan University, 3101 Bardstown Rd.
“This workshop will show chefs and restaurant owners how to answer consumer demand for lower-calorie and healthier foods, while making those foods delicious and eye-appealing,” said Cynthia Ann Chandler, registered dietician and culinary nutritionist with Sullivan University.
The workshop will demonstrate how to make delicious menu items using healthier fat selections and lower sodium options as well as how to prepare menu items lower in calories.
Funds for the workshop are provided from the $7.9 federal Communities Putting Prevention to Work grant to further the work of the Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement.
Anyone interested in more information or registering for the free workshop can contact Ann Badger at 502-574-5872 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
