About the Book
This one-of-a-kind cookbook documents the inaugural year of Barrio Bites working with students at Boston Preparatory Charter Public School as they learn to work together in order to create out-of-their comfort zone meals.
Barrio Bites provides culinary counseling to students in areas of need in order to develop their executive functioning skills and foster a love for cooking, community, culture, and connection. I look to provide a safe, engaging environment where students learn to cook in order to strengthen their working memory, flexible thinking skills, task persistence, and communicational empathy. I also look to engage with families, business partners, and neighborhood organizations in order to build bridges and strengthen our community bonds.
