Culinary Techniques Every Dietetic Professional Should Master

Speaker: Tony Amidor, MS, RD, CDN, FAND

Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at 2:30pm CST/3:30pm EST

In this webinar, the speaker will discuss various ways to educate clients regarding creating, modifying, and identifying healthy recipes. Healthier flavoring, cooking, and prep techniques will be discussed.

With the number of people cooking at home on the rise, dietetic practitioners need to be able to educate clients on how to lighten up or modify dishes while maintaining their flavor appeal or develop healthy recipes on their own. The speaker will discuss healthy cooking techniques, healthier ways of flavoring food, and ways to retain nutrients during preparation and cooking, along with steps for developing recipes.
