Let’s face it! After an eight hour day chained to an office desk, or on the go, the last thing you want to do is slave away in the kitchen. Salud chefs will help you get out of the rut of takeout and microwave meals so that you can enjoy fresh, healthy and easily prepared meals at home. Coming up with weeknight meals can seem like a daunting task, so spend a few hours with a Professional Chef and see how they prepare meals for themselves and their families. You will learn tips and secrets on how you can prepare gourmet meals with just a few ingredients and little time.

 

MENU: Shrimp and Cabbage Stir Fry; Sweet and Sour Chicken; Butternut Squash Risotto; Bow Ties with Sundried Tomato and Scallion Cream; and Apple Dump Cake
