JBF Partners with the Clinton Foundation to Launch America Cooks with Chefs: The 800 Calorie ChallengeJBF Editors
January 14, 2014
We're excited to announce our new partnership with the Clinton Foundation to launch America Cooks with Chefs: The 800 Calorie Challenge, a cooking competition that will pair six lucky home cooks with six celebrity chef “trainers,” including JBF Award winner Tony Mantuano and Mary Sue Milliken, to create healthy, approachable meals. An online video series will feature 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 2015 Clinton Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) conference 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.
