[Baton Rouge, La] Youth participating in the SU Ag Center’s Creating Healthy Enjoyable Foods or C.H.E.F. program got the chance to host their own individual cooking shows in the Ag Center television studio. The cooking shows were recorded and will be showcased to the participants and others on Friday, July 27 at the conclusion of the session.

The students prepared a variety of recipes from berry berry pancakes, cheese quesadillas, to astronaut pudding.
“I thought the cooking show was a nice experience because I never did anything like that before,” said C.H.E.F. student Destiney Mason. “I like that I get to learn how to cook so when I get older I can cook for myself and not have to go to restaurants and I’ll be able to show others how to cook now.”

The second session of the C.H.E.F. program began this week for youth between the ages of 12 and 14. With the help of Sharman Charles and Eva Davis of the LSU AgCenter, C.H.E.F. creator De’Shoin York Friendship is teaching participants a wide variety of recipes. Students prepare their own ingredients while getting first hand experience in the kitchen and education on nutrition, utensils to use in the kitchen, skills needed to cook meals at home and recipes.
The program is conducted in partnership with the LSU AgCenter's East Baton Rouge Extension Office.
