Culinary Insights | Steven Dunn – Chef and Food writer at Oui Chef
4:00pm – For the birthday celebration on July 25th, Culinary Insights will be featuring local chef and blogger, Steven Dunn, of Oui Chef. A volunteer chef at Cooking Matters, a national program for teaching families how to plan, purchase and prepare healthy, tasty, and affordable foods at home, Steve will be demonstrating a family-friendly menu that showcases the new USDA “My Plate” recommendations. Together with Marcia Richards of Healthy Plymouth, Steve will be giving a tour of the market at 3:15pm and will be discussing the health benefits of a local, whole foods diet. All are welcome to participate.
Steve is a 40 something father of five with a background in marketing and finance, who recently completed a two year professional hiatus during which he indulged his long held passion for cooking by moving to France to study the culinary arts and immerse himself in all things French. He earned “Le Grande Diplome” from Le Cordon Bleu, studied also at The Ritz Escoffier and Lenotre cooking schools, and completed the course offerings of the famed Bordeaux L’Ecole du Vin.
“Oui, Chef” exists as an extension of my efforts to teach my kids a few things about cooking, and how their food choices over time effect not only their own health, but that of our local food communities and our planet at large. By sharing some of our cooking experiences, I hope to inspire other families to start spending more time together in the kitchen, passing on established familial food traditions, and starting some new ones. My desire in the end is not just to enhance my young sous chefs’ culinary skills and their level of environmental awareness, but to broaden their palettes as well.
