Where to Learn How to Whip Up Healthy Meals Like a Philly Pro (From Philly Chefs!) Next Month 

Get schooled by Philly chefs on everything from salads to sweets.

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you’ve probably seen us wax poetic about Be Well Philly Boot Camp — our wonderful ladies-only day of ALL things wellness coming up June 4th — at some point over the past few weeks. I mean, what with all the fitness classes (20 total!), the amazing inspirational speakers and the post-sweat healthy happy hour, it deserves some gushing over. But one thing we haven’t told you guys a whole lot about yet is the Culinary Demo Stage. So let me tell you: We have some awesome chefs lined up to school you on how to throw down in the kitchen like a pro.

Throughout the day, we’ll have a slew of Philly chefs showing us all how to whip up everything from salads to desserts to brown-bag lunches. To kick it off the day, at 10 a.m., is Jolene Hart, author of Eat Pretty, and Jessica Yeager, the culinary nutrition educator at Rittenhouse’s P.S. & Co. They’ll be showing you tricks for making sweets that will make your skin glow. In other words, they’ll be proving that you can, in fact, have it all.

Next up will be Rich Landau, the chef and owner from Philly’s much-loved plant-based restaurants Vedge and V Street, who will be leading a demo called The Part-Time Vegan’s Guide to Brown-Bag Lunches. After all, the “Vegan Before 6” way of eating is very much in right now, and, while we’re all adults here, we could all still use some help when it comes to packing our lunches, am I right?

After that, we’ll have Bobby Saritosglou, the chef at Midtown Village’s Opa, showing us how to impress in the kitchen, Mediterranean style. And just in time, since new research shows chowing down on a Mediterranean Diet can slow down the aging process. (Yes, please!)

Last up, we have Marcie Turney — yep, the chef behind favorites like Barbuzzo, Jamonera, Little Nonna’s and more — giving us the lowdown on how to make healthy salads that feel sinful. Being the lady who created the oh-so-delicious kale salad at Barbuzzo, she is QUITE the expert.

You’ll go home feeling like you got a mini dose of culinary school from some of Philly’s favorite chefs. (And you’ll surely be able to show off for your S.O. come dinnertime.) So, to get in on the action, make sure to snag your ticket for the big day, June 4th, here!
