America Cooks with Chefs

American Cooks with Chefs

America Cooks with Chefs, our partnership with the Clinton Foundation, is a cooking competition that pairs six lucky home cooks with six celebrity chef “trainers,” including JBF Award winners Tony Mantuano and Mary Sue Milliken, to create healthy, approachable meals.

An online video series features an episode with each duo as they take part in an intense, one-day “cooking well kitchen camp” at the chefs’ restaurants, working together to redesign a recipe around healthy nutritional guidelines without sacrificing taste or presentation. The contestants will then attend the Clinton Health Matters Annual Activation Summit in La Quinta, California, where they will bring their new skills to a live cooking challenge at the conference, where a panel of celebrity judges will select a winner.

This collaborative program is being facilitated by managing partner Palisades Media Ventures in a creative effort to tackle rising obesity rates and nutrition-induced illnesses on a national scale.
