Take a Swing at Healthy Cooking

With Major League Baseball playoffs coming up next month, join in the excitement by encouraging your students, clients, or employees to take a swing at cooking healthy meals.

Our Home Run Cooking book with leader guide and PowerPoint shows will make you a hit with any audience. Even cooking demo rookies will be ready to step up to the plate with help from the Professional Cooking Demo Guide.

Whether you hold a one-time cooking demo, offer a class series, or record a cooking webinar, Home Run Cooking covers all the bases. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Batter On Deck: Start simple with a series covering the basics – setting up your kitchen, stocking your pantry, knife skills, food and kitchen safety, and different cooking methods.
  • Base Hit: Focus on one meal and run with it. Show your audience the many ways to get on base with a healthy breakfast, for example.
  • Fielder’s Choice: Add to your cooking demos with health and nutrition lessons, cost-cutting tips, a supermarket tour – whatever works for you.
  • Double Play: After you show your audience how easy it is to prepare healthy meals, send them home with their own Home Run Cooking Book or copies of recipes and handouts.
  • Perfect Game: Use the 50-slide PowerPoint show full of beautiful photos of easy-to-prepare meals to encourage everyone to take a swing at healthy cooking.

This page takes a closer look at poaching, which is a cooking method that employs moist heat in order to prepare food. When it comes to making meals, there are three major categories — moist heat, dry heat, and no heat. The Home Run Cooking book covers all three in great detail.
