True Food Kitchen Hosts Cancer-Prevention Series

True Food Kitchen at Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix has always been about healthy living, offering delicious and nutritious eats to its patrons. The menu is chock-full of organic ingredients, whole grains, biodynamic and sustainable wine, healthy fats like olive oil, wheat-free pastas and more. (True Food Kitchen is also a partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil, which speaks to the restaurant’s health-consciousness.)  Now, the Fox Restaurant Concepts’  True Food Kitchen will host a lecture series on cancer prevention to take its healthful approach to another level. Led by local experts from the University of Arizona and The Arizona Cancer Center, each of the lectures in the six-part series is free to attend . Each lecture will also include appetizers and beverages. The lectures run from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and will include time for questions and answers. Topics from the series range from skin cancer and cervical cancer prevention to personalized medicine. Reservations are required by calling 480.751.2176 and space is limited.

“True Food Kitchen is not only known for its great food and service, but also as an educational resource for the community,” said Sam Fox, founder and CEO of Fox Restaurant Concepts. “The cooking and wine classes we held last summer with Dr. Andrew Weil and our Executive Chef Michael Stebner were a huge hit. We think this lecture series is really important for the community and are proud to partner with the Arizona Cancer Center.”

    I have always said I am more of a visual person. I think this is a great way to learn proper nutrition while sampling great appetizers.
