Cooking with New Roots

Thanks to Cassandra, one of our leadership clients, BsideU was able to partner with New Roots, the Fresh Stop Market, and the American Heart Association to provide farm fresh organic food for 12 of our clients during 2 cooking classes.  The Old Louisville Fresh Stop Market was the one utilized which is located on 4th street less than 1 mile from BsideU.  The assortment of 10 fresh vegetables was picked up on Wednesday evening for the Thursday morning 1 1/2 hour long class. This included instruction from a local chef who taught facts about vegetables, cutting skills, nutrition, storage, and other creative cooking techniques.

“The cooking class that was sponsored on August 2 and 16 by New Roots at BsideU For Life was amazing.  We learned how to properly cube cucumbers, squash, eggplant, onions, garlic, zucchini, and peppers with Chef Mark.  Chef Mark also gave us some valuable information on what vegetables provide as far as nutrients for our body.  We were also given (in both classes) vegetables and fruit such as watermelon, peaches, potatoes, tomatoes, okra, and lettuce to take home.  I had a wonderful time interacting with my peers and also with Chef Mark.  Hope to see Chef Mark real soon.  Thanks so much!” –Chrissy, class attendee

We would like to extend a big thank you to New Roots , Fresh Stop Market and the American Heart Association for partnering with us to make the above events possible!
