Healthy Cooking at Independence LIVE

Experts and chefs on how to eat well and feel great.

Great-tasting food you can feel good about eating. That’s the thinking behind the Billy Penn Healthy Cooking series at Independence LIVE.

Throughout the year, we’re bringing in chefs and other food experts to lead sessions on a variety of delicious dishes, drinks and meals. Events are held in the Independence LIVE show kitchen — a seriously cool space in the middle of Center City — and typically include:

  • up-close cooking demonstrations
  • tastes and samples
  • a talk about how to maximize the food’s health potential
  • Q&A with the audience

Events usually run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Each evening is limited to 50 people, and tickets are priced to sell — i.e. you’ll  definitely want to get yours early.
