Southern Living and Cooking Light team up with Jones Valley Teaching Farm to host Family Kitchen, a new community cooking initiative.
No I didn't know what I was getting into. That's the good part about it, the mystery of it. It was an open invitation and we were sat four weeks every Tuesday. We picked up at Oliver Elementary School. The family kitchen is where we get a chance to go into the kitchen at Southern Living and Cooking Light. Just learning about different meals, healthy eating, knowing that the vegetables come from [UNKNOWN] farm, really. Helps, because I've seen how they grow. In our group it's my daughter Darnella, her husband is Jermaine, my granddaughter Kyla, my grandson Jamarcus, and myself. Each family was assigned a chef, and this is just like, like we've been knowing each other forever. Everyone is hands on, cutting, squeezing, mashing. It was really fun to just see how my grandchildren were involved, because they haven't really been in a kitchen. We sit down to a table and we eat what we've prepared. It's so important for us to learn how to just have family time, and I know it's going to make us try more foods, and more varieties of foods and vegetables. It's gone and opened up a whole new way of cooking for us. This is a part of what we need to do for our children. We need to go back to the healthy way of life. I think it should happen all the time. If we could just bring it in to the community, because family kitchen helps a family, Know how to be family. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
