Educating the “Healthy” Masses
By Ed Pecinka
Opportunities to bring knowledge and value to our marketplace comes from many different places. In the month of March, after attending the bi annual NAFEM “training ground”, Pecinka Ferri has been fortunate to “educate” our industry, not only on a regular basis in our Culinary Center or by sharing our sales staff and knowledge with our key dealer partners as they presented “what’s new” and unique at the annual International Restaurant and Foodservice Show of New York.
We were requested to participate in two unique programs that have allowed our staff to “teach” new cooking techniques and product applications.
Our Chef Nick Mercogliano, with his sous’ John Alfano and Amir Kamal, cooked and presented at the AHF-NY event “Mindful Eating for the Beloved Community- Plant Based Culinary Clinic”. This was followed up this week with Chef Nick presenting “Farm to Table, Vegetables and Micro Greens” to students at Queensborough Community College. The school’s annual common read was Will Allen’s, The Good Food Revolution. Chef Nick presented our Garden Chef as a unique tool available today that will allow restaurants and healthcare facilities a perfect environment for growth of micro greens and vegetables. By bringing “tasting samples” along with a freshly grown tray of wheatgrass, this presentation gave perfect closure with real-life examples of the value of good foods.
