On Monday, January 24, 2011, the culinary arts classroom at Anzar High School in San Juan Bautista was buzzing with sights, sounds and smells. More than 20 people attended the first Healthy Cooking Class as part of the San Benito Food Revolution put on by San Benito Bounty in partnership with the San Benito County Medical Society and the Community Foundation for San Benito County.
Chef Ray Sanchez crafted a feast of flavors from savory roasted chicken to baked potatoes with zesty fresh salsa to lemon-chive carrots and a cabbage/apple slaw. Easy to prepare, based with local seasonal vegetables, it was met with great enthusiasm from the class participants.
Nutritionist Jamie Flores and local physician Dr. Ralph Armstrong were on hand to add additional insights into healthy eating and lifestyle. Nants Foley brought information from the Y on its wellness classes offered in San Benito County. She also brought tips on buying fresh, local produce.
The next class is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, February 28 at San Andreas School’s Kitchen. San Andreas is located on Alvarado Street in Hollister.
