Julia Nordgren, MD, The New Family Table

Saturday, October 5, 2019, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Dr. Julia Nordgren is a pediatrician, trained chef, and author of The New Family Table: Cooking More, Eating Together & Staying (Relatively) Sane

Her years of treating patients for cholesterol disorders, prediabetes, and childhood obesity are what motivated her to enroll in the Culinary Institute of America’s Accelerated Culinary Arts Certificate Program, where she graduated with honors. Since then, Dr. Nordgren has helped countless families move the needle on becoming more intentional about their eating, while developing sustainable and impactful lifestyle changes. Dr. Nordgren maintains a vibrant pediatric weight management practice at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and leads a hands-on Culinary Medicine class at the Stanford University Teaching Kitchen.

Dr. Nordgren received her medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School, completing her pediatrics residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where she was elected Chief Resident. She lives and practices medicine in Palo Alto, where she tests many of her recipes on her husband and two boys, who luckily have adventurous appetites and honest opinions.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
