Lately I have had numerous requests from clientele for hands-on programs that meld nutrition information and cooking. I am looking for evidence-based culinary-nutrition programs for adults that are independent of the SNAP-ED program. Are there any programs that you know of or have had success with? Please point me in the right direction.
