Cooking With Confidence Registration
HAVIN is inviting you to a special online Zoom meeting entitled: Cooking With Confidence.
In the 1980s, Aretha Franklin asked the musical question, "Who's Zoomin' Who?"
The answer to that question in 2020 is HAVIN! That's right, since we are waiting to reschedule our postponed 2020 HAVIN Insight Expo, the Houston Area Visually Impaired Network (HAVIN) will be bringing selected workshops to you using the Zoom platform.
We hope you have been able to take part in our prior HAVIN Zoom workshops. The next exciting workshop has now been scheduled, and will take place on Saturday, May 30, at 1 p.m. Stacie Gallegos, who serves as the secretary of HAVIN, the President of the Houston Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind, and co-owner of RGA Tech Solutions, will host the next exciting webinar. Stacie has worked in the field of blindness for most of her life, teaching individuals of all ages and abilities. Stacie has a strong desire to assist blind and visually impaired individuals reach their highest level of independence using safe and appropriate non-visual techniques in many areas. In this workshop, Stacie will share her love for cooking; introducing methods that a blind person can cook with confidence and full independence.
During these unprecedented times, many of us continue to adjust to the changes in our daily lives caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. While it is easy to rely on family members, friends, or delivery services to do the cooking for us, there will be those times that we want to do the cooking on our own. Stacie will demonstrate the various non-visual techniques that a blind person can use in the kitchen. These techniques will include; basic organization, accessing recipes, measuring ingredients, pouring, mixing, and using the oven to name a few. While the end-goal will be making cookies, the techniques demonstrated will be transferable in many other areas and for many other recipes. Participants will have the chance to ask questions during the webinar. Those who register will have their name entered into a drawing to win a batch of Stacie’s famous cookies.
This webinar will be recorded so that it can be shared, allowing viewers to practice the areas covered. Stacie will also share a list of tools and gadgets she regularly uses, so that participants will also be able to cook with confidence on their own.
We are in this together, and together with the HAVIN Team from Houston, Texas, we will empower you with the knowledge and confidence to make a snack, a small meal, or host an entire party.
Registration information is below, and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2020. Participation will be limited to the first 100 people who register. All registrants will receive the Zoom connection information the night before the webinar. Remember, there will be a door prize for one of those lucky attendees. So, don't delay, get registered!
