Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives is an exciting partnership between Harvard Medical School Osher Institute and the Culinary Institute of America. These prestigious institutions sponsor hands-on workshops bridging nutrition science, health care, and culinary arts. In a nutshell, these folks work tirelessly to promote the kitchen as the center of a medical system for improving the health of society. They believe if they teach people how to cook, and enjoy food in a way that doesn’t leave feelings of deprivation, physically or socially, our medical system and the health of Americans can change for the better. I don’t know about you, but I’m all for the concept of cooking and sharing food as the cornerstone of health care.
