'Big Chef, Little Chef' is an organization founded by Miami chef Lorena Garcia. Originally a native of Venezuela, Garcia's passion for Latin American cooking has made her one of the most well-know Hispanic chefs in the US. Now Garcia is sharing her knowledge with families who are looking to improve their own cooking skills.
Big Chef, Little Chef provides hands-on cooking classes and workshops for children and their parents. The program not only teaches families how to make healthy meals, but it also teaches them the importance of nutrition. Garcia explains that the motivation to create the organization came from her travels, which exposed her to the issue of obesity in many Hispanic communities.
By putting a healthy spin on popular Latin American recipes and more traditional American fare, Big Chef, Little Chef helps children and their parents learn healthy eating habits.
