Chef Kashia Cave will give a cooking demonstration, “Farm to Table—Cooking with Produce from Farmers’ Markets” sponsored by the Friends of the Case Memorial Library on Thursday, September 26 at 6:30pm.
Trinidad-born and current Meriden community leader, Kashia Diaz Cave acquired her passion for cooking from her family. Cooking and baking were a tradition which bonded the family. Growing up on the island, it was customary for girls, as young as 12, to learn how to prepare a meal. Kashia reveled in cooking a delicious meal and discovered that her culinary skills were a healthy way to bring people together.
As Executive Director of My City Kitchen located in Meriden, Chef Kashia extends her passion for cooking to her role as a community leader. She teaches children ages 6-17 and adults about health and wellness, using hands-on training to prepare nutritious meals.
Through her efforts, My City Kitchen and her Junior Chefs program have flourished into a successful non-profit organization. Chef Kashia knows the impact of culinary education and has been the winner of numerous local community service awards, and her achievements have also been recognized by international organizations.
Now is the season to pick up a variety of farm-fresh produce from local farmers’ markets. And what better way is there to enjoy the healthy harvest than to come to the Case Memorial Library and learn how to dish up some tasty and nutritious meals. Call 203-891-2170 or go to make reservations.
