My City Kitchen
There are many tried-and-true recipes that moms and dads trot out on the 4th of July. This year, why not try something a little different from the traditional burgers, dogs and three-bean salads?
Eating healthy, green, lean and clean is something that even a child can learn – provided they have a teacher like Chef Kashia Cave. The classically trained chef has eschewed the world of commercial cuisine to commit herself to teaching young people how to make healthy, sensible and affordable food choices.
Kashia Cave, founder of My City Kitchen in Meriden, provides some gluten-free recipes for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
Thanksgiving is not just about turkey – especially for those who do not like or are tired of the traditional stuffed bird. Many families prefer a roast, seafood, lasagna or even a rice-based dish. Here are just four main course alternatives.
A workout is a waste if the food consumed before, in between and after is not healthy. Chef Kashia Cave is a classically trained chef who helps teach children and teens not only how to make good food choices but also how to make good food. She understands that everyone, and especially the young, too often succumb to bad eating habits simply because nobody ever showed them how easy and enjoyable it is to make healthy meals and snacks.
Cooking with children should be messy, exciting and fun; at least that’s what Connecticut chefs Kashia Cave and Cindy Hartog, who have devoted their careers to kitchen crafts with kids, believe.
