The Sustainable Kitchen: Backyard BBQ

This is a cooking class taught in person by the Conservatory’s Sustainability Educator, Heather Bell. As with all of the classes in The Sustainable Kitchen series, Heather will talk about sustainability in the kitchen and the small steps you can take to help the planet as she teaches you to cooks something delicious.

Learn how to grill juicy chicken breasts and thighs spiced with BBQ seasoning. Then top the chicken with a grilled corn and pineapple relish and serve with a side of grilled zucchini. You’ll also learn how to make a refreshing guava lime cocktail.

Instructor: Heather Bell

Heather Bell is the Sustainability Educator for Youth Programs at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Her degree is in Environment, Economy, Development, & Sustainability from OSU. While that’s her first love, cooking and baking are her second. She started learning from the best: her great-grandmother. When she was 5 years old she baked her first apple pie and hasn’t stopped experimenting and learning. You’re invited to take a class with Heather where she’ll share her tips on adding that “chefy” spin to a meal with a touch of sustainability.

What To Expect

Great cooking is about more than recipes—it’s about techniques. In our classes, you’ll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors.
