Virtual cooking class to benefit local organization
Published 2:50 PDT, Thu June 23, 2022
The latest virtual cooking class hosted by EverythingGoesVirtual.com (EGV) is raising funds for Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives.
The class will take place on Saturday (June 25) from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. June is National Indigenous History Month, and chef Paul Natrall is from Squamish Nation and specializes in Indigenous cuisine. Natrall will be cooking live from Richmond, showcasing traditional ingredients and ancient cooking methods with viewers.
“We support the idea that the virtual cooking event allows interaction without limitation on location, age, or race. More importantly, it is a medium to promote culture, understanding, and inclusivity through cooking, similar to the values of Trail Appliances,” says Cara Kampff, senior brand manager at Trail Appliances Ltd., the event’s sponsor. “This is a wonderful way to learn Indigenous history and culture outside of a classroom setting and, even better, through the love of cooking and food.”
The EGV platform aims to create interaction between the chef and participants through live communication. For instance, the chef can review the progress of the participants and give live feedback. The participants can also type their questions and comments in the chat function, or simply ask the chef “face to face.”
Each participant will receive a box of ingredients, with quantities measured. Members of the public can also participate by preparing their own ingredients and watch on the EGV website and Facebook Live. Photos and videos can be shared on the website and social media.
This is the final installation five-episode Culture Tastic series. More learning will take place beginning in the fall.
