As part of our partnership with the ‘Pork Te Inspira’ Campaign from the National Pork Board we joined the fun at the recent Fun & Fit as a Family event held at Miami’s Jungle Island where young chefs turned into ‘Little Pork Gurus’ to talk about healthy recipe options and food alternatives. The group of aspiring mini chefs at the ‘Sabios del Sabor’ afternoon were led by Latina Chef Doreen Colondres who had mucho fun teaching participating kids new tricks but also hearing their own ideas.
We attended with our new Food Editor GianCarlo and watched Chef Colondres talk to the kids very clearly about new recipe ideas, getting in the kitchen and really trying new foods. The kids were excited to participate and had the opportunity to create and enjoy their own mini healthy pizzas and create pork meatballs as a healthier alternative.
But let’s here it from them! Our aspiring chefs had plenty to tell us about their day:
Nos encanto tanto la receta de las albóndigas, que aquí lo tienes! Que disfrutes de tan rica comida.
And our Los Tweens ‘Teen’ Reporters Sophia, Gianna and Olivia had fun checking out the food demonstrations and tastings at the Pork Te Inspira program and added activities throughout the day at Fun & Fit as a Family. Check out our first Pork Te Inspira post on Los Tweens!
