Inspired and guided by two books—The Food Mood Connection by Dr. Uma Naidoo and The Mood Cure by Julia Ross—Chef Cynthia Haynes will lead a discussion about how food can effect one’s mood. Followed by a cooking demonstration showing you how to change the way you cook, which could change how you feel.
Cynthia is a graduate of the acclaimed Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts and the University of Massachusetts - Boston. She also studied with the Wine and Spirits Education Trust and has provided behind the scenes production for events such as the Boston Wine Expo at the Seaport World Trade Center, and the New England Food and Service Trade Show. In addition to her culinary talent, Cynthia has given back to the community as a selfless volunteer by preparing breakfast and lunch at a nonprofit shelter—the Women’s Lunch Place in Boston, Massachusetts. Currently she is working with The Cambridge Adult Literacy Program to help adults read and speak English and other adults in need of obtaining a GED or High School Diploma.
