Eat Well & Age Gracefully: The Chinese Vegan Kitchen

September 21, 2023 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


Thursday, September 21, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Eat Well & Age Gracefully: The Chinese Vegan Kitchen with Chef Barry Infuso. Sponsored by AARP, the class is free.

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated or boring while enjoying a variety of foods from different food groups – fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, legumes, dairy products, and healthy fats.

In this month’s Eat Well & Age Gracefully class, sponsored by AARP, you’ll cook a sumptuous Chinese vegan meal with Chef Barry Infuso.

On the menu: Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, a traditional temple dish, blanched cabbage leaves are stuffed with a savory mushroom filling then wrapped. Fragrant Dressed Tofu with Garlic and Basil is blanched tofu seasoned with fresh herbs; the preparation is minimal – the taste is sensational.

Kung Pao Mushrooms has the Sichuanese flavor profile combining a sweet, hot, and vinegary glaze with crisp golden peanuts and blistered dried red chiles; the heat is toned down to make the dish fragrant and filled with exotic Asian flavors. The dessert category doesn’t really exist in Chinese food, but sweets still play an important role in Chinese food. You’ll make almond cookies to enjoy with tea.

      Hi Suzy, thanks for your message. Unfortunately, the class is full, that's why you couldn't sign up. If you'd like, I can add you and Mike to the waiting list. It would be nice to see you again.
