Heritage Crossing Participates in Cook-Along Video Series with Multiple Communities
Residents at Heritage Crossing have come to love Teaching Kitchen events as a way to celebrate food, community, and lifelong learning. Heritage Crossing’s dining team, Duet Hospitality, inspires and entertains residents by streaming and recording Teaching Kitchen sessions that focus on fun foods that are healthy and easy to prepare. Some sessions feature delivery of dishes prepared during the live streams.
To collaborate and share best practices across communities, Chef Marco with Clermont Park in Colorado live streams Teaching Kitchens to residents across communities in Indiana, Utah, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas. By utilizing the power of technology, teams can come together and support one another and reach a broader audience across the nation. Since the event is live, residents enjoy interacting with the chef and asking questions. The residents are able to give their feedback on which recipes are featured and then they make their own version as they follow along.
The live virtual Teaching Kitchen series is offered every two months and includes a chef as well as a dietitian. Teaching Kitchens typically feature a recipe with a Superfood as the main focus—such as avocados, whole grains, citrus, and more.
