Cooking Class at Mirasol

To help ease the transition from residential treatment to life after Mirasol, Mirasol provides dietitian-assisted menu planning and grocery shopping outings, along with weekly cooking classes.

In this video, Mirasol Chef Dee O'Leary provides a hearty helping of practical kitchen skills such as prep work, knife safety and the importance of healthy fats, seasoned with entertaining tips for "getting down with your food", letting vegetables "party in the pan" and judicious use of "aerial assault".

Look out Anthony Bourdain, Dee is a rock star! We're so lucky to have talented chefs like Dee, who delight in sharing their love and knowledge of food preparation with Mirasol clients.
