Cooking 101

Most young people know how to open the refrigerator—but how many have the confidence to cook up a square meal? In this video, Mike Colameco, producer and host of PBS’s Colameco’s Food Show, offers empowering, easy-to-follow lessons for students who are intimidated by the kitchen. Mike guides viewers through the creation of two nutritious, tasty meals: pork loin with potatoes and spinach, and good old-fashioned spaghetti and meatballs. Along with step-by-step demonstrations of basic cooking techniques, Mike also breaks down each meal by cost—emphasizing that home cooking is low-stress, easy on the budget, and the best way for students to control what they eat. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. A Meridian Production. (24 minutes)
