With Laura Pole, RN, MSN, PCNS
Winter is a time for coming inside. . . huddling close together with family. . . also focusing on healing from within. Come see how the foods of Winter will warm you, replenish you, and help you create a body that is inhospitable to cancer. You will help Chef Laura prepare your meal and we’ll all sit down together to enjoy one of the greatest gifts of food – eating in good company!
Here’s what you’ll be creating: Moroccan Sweet Potato Lentil Soup; Citrus Kale Apple Salad; Millet Croquettes; Ginger Chocolate Custard. Is your mouth watering yet?
