Edible Education! Creating a Rhythm in your Kitchen

Food is an essential element in life. Consuming it should present opportunities for enjoyment, well-being, and comradery. Preparations can be fun-filled challenges that finish with healthful, tasty meals. Culinary Nutrition Educator and Certified Nutrition Counselor Holly Shelowitz loves to teach people how to shop well, cook well, and eat well. In turn, she founded Nourishing Wisdom Nutrition.  It's edible education!  

Join Chef Shelowitz for an evening to remember as she gives the audience a guided tour of quality food, preparation, and presentation. During her lecture with demonstration and sampling, Creating a Rhythm in your Kitchen ~ Culinary Nutrition ~ she will explore true nourishment of body and mind. Come to the OBTC Great Room 101 in Kaplan Hall at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18 and learn how to have delicious nourishing food on your table and in your life with healthy eating by cooking with good, fresh ingredients that don’t break the bank and have short prep time.

Shelowitz will explain how planning can set the stage for several meals as one builds on basic, good, preferably locally grown vegetables, and one meal leads to another.

In cooperation with and supporting the efforts of Newburgh Urban Farm and Food Initiative (NUFFI) in its community gardens project, Cultural Affairs at SUNY Orange brings this educational program to the college community and the community-at-large to show the value of good and nourishing food planning that produce delicious meals to promote health. Shelowitz will share her recipe, too.

Shelowitz graduated from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s Professional Training Program in NYC. She also studied herbal healing with Pam Montgomery, Dina Falconi, Deb Soule, Rosemary Gladstar, and  Susun Weed. She has taught nutrition and cooking classes at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Food and Health, NYC, the Bronx Botanical Gardens, farmers markets and culinary stores, as well as libraries, colleges, and schools. She is a regular guest on WDST Radio Woodstock’s morning show, and has been featured in magazines as a nutrition and cooking expert. In addition, she leads nutrition classes and Workplace Wellness Workshops. Another talent she possesses is her keen eye in photography. Originally focused on children and books for them, her skilled photography is an integral part of her nutrition work.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not necessary; just come. Free and secure parking is available in the Kaplan Hall garage accessible at 73 First Street.  Questions may be directed to or (845) 341-4891, or check out the SUNY Orange website at:
