Meals That Heal: Vegetables Re-Imagined

Monday, May 15 | 6:00 - 7:00 pm

Let Chef Denà show you how to put a new spin on your vegetable vocabulary. There is nothing quite like learning to bring fresh vegetables together to form a sumptuous recipe that, with the proper techniques, result in a variety of dishes that awaken the senses and please the taste buds.

Facilitated by Dená Brummer, cook, food stylist, teacher and writer, epitomizes the modern chef. What ties these roles together, besides an immersion in the world of food, is her unyielding desire to educate and empower her community through health-focused cuisine. After a 15-year career in communications/marketing, she decided to take a detour into the world of food and enrolled at the Institute of Culinary Education to study Health Supportive Culinary Arts. Since 2018, she has been on a journey to combine her two passions – food and storytelling – with the intent of creating work that inspires, creates community, and raises cultural, social and environmental awareness. Today, she runs a teaching garden at City of Hope and works as a private chef.
