To Do: Baby Food For The Soul

Calling all DIY parents: chef Ryan Morgan wants to teach you how to make homemade baby food.

When I first met the Art and Soul executive chef back in November, he was taking his culinary training into new territory — learning to make baby food for his infant daughter. “As a father, I know firsthand how important it is to give your baby proper nutrients, and to be aware of all the ingredients that are found in what we feed them,” Morgan says.

On Saturday, March 21 at 11 a.m., the chef will teach participants about the benefits of making homemade baby food, from health and economic factors to which ingredients are most beneficial to babies. Who'd of thought lavender and cayenne are on that list?

The hour-long class is $35 per parent, and you're welcome to bring baby along. For every seat purchased, $10 will go to DC Safe Kitchen, a partnership between chef Art Smith, The Liaison Capitol Hill and the DC Fire and Rescue Squad that will teach DC youth about kitchen safety skills.
