Registration is now open for the new workshops of the Sustainable Cooking project, the Atibaia Saneamento initiative, the Grupo Iguá operation and NTICS Projetos in partnership with the Secretariats of Education, Aid and Social Development and SAAE. Classes are held on June 13 at two different times and on different topics.
The first workshop will run from 9:00 am to 11:30 am and will focus on “Recipes to Keep Warm in Winter” as temperatures begin to drop in much of the southern hemisphere and the new climate calls for hot foods that help the body to protect itself from the season’s worst. cold season. In addition, during this time, some products are hard to find at fairs, while others remain more affordable.
On the same day, from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm, a second workshop will teach cooking techniques for Children’s Meals, emphasizing the importance of planning a menu that is rich in essential nutrients for a child’s development and helps prevent disease. . Therefore, it is very important that the food is varied, healthy and, in some cases, also playful in order to arouse more interest in the dish in the little ones.
For Daniele Morimoto, a mother of two children, one of whom has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, the approach to the topic will be important. “He has a lot of difficulty with food because of the selectivity in food, so in that sense this course will be very good.”
Last year, during the most critical phase of the pandemic, Daniele began to dream of working in the gastronomy industry, largely due to the need to stay at home longer and take care of her children. “I am an example of people who do not fit into the traditional market because I have a special child who depends on me. I started working doing what I know, which is cooking, but I was not allowed to continue because of the cost of the material,” says Morimoto.
However, the scenario changed after participating in the Sustainable Kitchen project. “The workshops helped me with that as well, I learned how to use the ingredients we have at home sparingly, reusing products and even allowing products to be sold at a more affordable price. I was able, for example, to cook dishes from banana peels that used to be thrown in the trash,” concludes the mother, who regularly attends classes at the Atibaya sustainability project.
Registration in the initiative is free and available to city residents aged 18 and over. To take your seat, simply go to www.ptsatibaia.com.br and click on the “Sustainable Cuisine” link.
