Kevin Roberts on September menu at Corporate College West and Eastern Campus
Anybody can cook quick, healthy and tasty meals on a budget. Want to know how? Then come listen and learn when the “The Food Dude” visits Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) in September.
Chef and restaurateur Kevin Roberts — aka, The Food Dude — will share the secrets to kitchen success during a pair of free programs at Tri-C.
The presentations and cooking demonstrations are open to the public and will take place at:
• 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, at Tri-C’s Corporate College West
25425 Center Ridge Road in Westlake
• 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, at Tri-C’s Eastern Campus
4250 Richmond Road in Highland Hills
The stops are part of The Food Dude’s nationwide college lecture tour. Roberts has spent the past decade visiting campuses to teach students how to best feed their body while feeding their mind.
Roberts operates four restaurants in Southern California and has authored two cookbooks. He competed and became a Top 10 Finalist on The Next Food Network Star, adding to his long list of television appearances.
He found his way to the kitchen as a child — “It was either cook or starve,” said Roberts, who was raised by a single mother — and then perfected his skills through studies in health and nutrition.
The Food Dude’s visit to Tri-C coincides with the College’s Student Success Week, a series of free workshops and events at each campus designed to help students learn how to perform their best.
