Plenty, Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ culinary and nutritional program, has been serving our community of partners since 2014. Through cooking demonstrations led by our chef partners, we teach our beneficiaries whole-ingredient, low-waste cooking using the delicious food we distribute each day to more than 25,000 people in Greater Boston and MetroWest.
Plenty has been growing! We were recently featured on the main stage at Boston Public Market, where chef Louis DiBiccari gave demonstrations on mushroom stem rice pilaf, spring onion top salsa, and potato and cauliflower stem soup. Audiences asked chef DiBiccari questions about recipes and low-waste cooking — and he got rave reviews on his dishes!
We’ve also started producing and filming a series of Plenty videos at the BCAE to share with even more people the importance of nutritional, low-waste cooking! We will be filming the best of our workshops with our chef partners next month, and will make them available on our website later this summer!
Here’s a look at Boston’s own Tiffani Faison, who led a workshop on no-stove cooking in March! In the video, we hear from the wonderful community at ABCD (one of our partners) about the value of Plenty workshops. Please watch the video, produced by ABCD, and then join us at Let’s Talk About Food on October 1st!
