La Tablee des Chefs releases cookbook
By Adnews Staff
La Tablée des Chefs, a Montreal-based a non-profit organization that works to counter food insecurity and to educate young people about food autonomy, has released a cookbook called So Good. The book is intended to provide young people with the information needed to become functional in a kitchen, as well as to promote the benefits of preparing healthy meals rather than relying on ready-to-eat food. It contains easy-to-make recipes that result in minimal waste, as well as instructions for culinary techniques that do not require hard-to-find ingredients. It also includes advice on basic kitchenware, food storage and inexpensive foods. The cookbook was developed as part of the organization’s “Cook Up Your Future” education program, which is sponsored by Sobeys and Unilever. It can be purchased at Indigo stores nationally and online.
“La Tablée des Chefs is a life project, a dream for me to help young people realize how important their food choices can be in their lives while providing them the essential tools that will enable their independency,” said Jean-François Archambault, general director of La Tablée des Chefs. “Ultimately, knowing how to cook for yourself shouldn't be a luxury and neither should be knowing what to buy to eat when you're starting out in life. To me, it's so essential for young people to be able to do that.”
