The Springfield Family Center is excited to announce our new cooking lesson series, Everyone Cooks featuring Jason Tostrup, award-winning chef and co-founder of Chester Helping Hands, based here Chester, VT!
Over the course of the three part video series we will go over easy, accessible beginner cooking skills and recipes using food you can get directly from the food shelf here at the Springfield Family Center. Each part teaches no frills, no fuss food preparation skills that only require affordable kitchen basics.
Follow along with chef Jason Tostrup as he demonstrates how to set up a cutting board, how to choose the right knife for the job, and how to cut a few important veggies: carrots, garlic, and onion. The skills you learn in this episode can be easily transferred to food prep for most other vegetables.
In this episode of Everyone Cooks, chef Jason Tostrup walks us through the process of making a simple beef and cabbage soup using produce you can find in the food boxes here at the Springfield Family Center! This is a simple one-pot recipe, and all the ingredients are accessible through the food shelf or for a very low cost at the grocery store.
