Consumer interest in virtual cooking events and cooking at home remains at an all-time high. As the food and nutrition experts, registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) in various practice settings are uniquely positioned to acquire a new skill set, reach a new audience, better serve their client/patient population or share their expertise by offering entertaining and educational virtual cooking events. This webinar will discuss the opportunities at hand for RDNs and provide a detailed look at what’s needed to successfully lead a live or recorded virtual cooking event. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will have the knowledge and confidence needed to plan, market, host and evaluate their first event of this kind.
Webinar participants will also have the option to experience a virtual cooking event themselves by joining Beth in the preparation of an easy recipe for Mediterranean Tuna Salad. A list of the required ingredients will be shared with registrants in advance for those that wish to cook along.
