Healthy cooking demonstration at the library

The community is invited to attend “Cooking with Dee: Springtime Fun Time” from 2:30 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 23 in the bookstore of the Grants Pass branch of Josephine Community Library, 200 NW C Street.

Community members can sample food at each demonstration and leave with simple, healthy recipes to get started on their path to wellness. Along the way, participants will learn tips and tricks for enjoying plant-based cuisine.

The menu for Springtime Fun Time includes creamy asparagus soup, tempeh chikin’ salad served on crackers, and cauliflower fettuccini alfredo.

Puller has devoted her time to teaching others how to prepare delicious plant-based meals. From food preparation and kitchen shortcuts to the nutritional, ethical, and social aspects of eating a plant-based diet. Her goal is to break down plant-based cooking, making it easy and accessible, all while giving her students tips, tricks, and tools that last a lifetime. Outside of teaching, Dee volunteers for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine Food for Life Cancer Project Cooking Classes and assists author Colleen Patrick-Goudreau of joyfulvegan.com with cooking classes, recipe testing for cookbooks, and tabling at Vegetarian Festivals.

“Springtime Fun Time” is the first of three cooking demonstrations in the “Cooking with Dee” series led by local plant-based expert, Dee Puller. Future cooking demonstration dates include Saturday, June 15 and Saturday, September 28.
