About this Event

In this ACTE/Rouxbe presentation, Chef Dan Marek will talk about Plant-Based Diets and how they can lead to a healthier lifestyle by simply eating more plants.

He will show a few techniques to help even the most seasoned chefs think differently about how they cook and small changes that can make a big difference.
