Winter Cooking Workshop Series

Adults are invited to join the Nutrition Services office of the Marion County Public Health Department for a series of programs as part of The Indianapolis Public Library’s Winter Cooking Workshop Series that will help in preparing healthy meals appropriate for the season.

The series, to be presented through March at various IndyPL locations, will feature the following topics:

  • "Keeping Warm With Soups"
    There’s nothing quite as comforting as a hot bowl of soup, and there’s no better way to warm up during cold weather. Soups and stews are eaten in many countries around the world. Join our class for this cultural food workshop to learn how to make soups from around the world. Afterwards you will be able to cook a big pot of one of your favorites for family and friends and get set to enjoy the warmth and flavor. The workshop includes live demonstrations, food tasting and a lecture. Registration is required. The workshop is limited to 20 participants per session.
  • "Healthy Gut, Healthy Me!"
    From your immune system to your mood, an array of conditions appears to be linked to the community of microorganisms within us or our microbiome. Join us to learn why maintaining a healthy gut is a hot topic of research and sample some recipes designed to keep your "bugs" in balance. The workshop includes live demonstrations, food tasting and a lecture. Registration is required. The workshop is limited to 20 participants per session.
  • "Go Red for Hearts!"
    Your heart works hard for you your whole life so why not show it some love! There are many things you can do to make yourself less likely to get heart disease. This interactive class will guide you through some lifestyle steps to help your heart, emphasizing some specific changes you can make to your diet to help prevent heart disease.
