Demonstration Kitchen

The demonstration kitchen is committed to promoting lifelong culinary and nutrition skills through cooking demonstrations and classes. These programs encourage and promote healthy eating with fresh, minimally processed ingredients while also building community among students, staff, and faculty. Located in the Well-Being Center, we strive to build strong nutrition habits and create a culture of health and wellness through food.

Participants are empowered to make balanced food choices, understand good nutrition practices, and learn cooking techniques. Demonstrations are taught by the UR registered dieticians, UR chefs and guest chefs from the Richmond area. Click here to watch a sweet potato demo!
