Join Chef Tom as he partners with @Autism Digest to deliver a great recipe that could be your dinner tonight. Just because a child is on the autism spectrum doesn't mean that they should ever be denied the privilege to prepare and eat a big bowl of pasta with meat sauce and enjoy it.
To all my autism parents out there whose kids are GFCF, this is a GFCF Pici with Meat Sauce and it's made with all organic ingredients.
So join me as I show you that it's not about sacrificing, it's just about replacing. And I encourage you to get your kids in the kitchen because learning to cook builds confidence, increases independence, and improves quality of life. So let's get to it because C.L.A.S.S. is about to begin.
Hope you check it out and enjoy it.
About Chef Tom
"If they can't learn the way that you teach, maybe you should teach the way that they learn."
"I want to change lives through food." Chef Jeff
Henderson in 1973 I was born on the Autism Spectrum. I have Autism, but it does not have me. I was told by experts that I would just be okay. That I would bag groceries for the rest of my life. Well I do have Autism, but I am also a professional chef, cookbook author, award winner, and as recent as 2017 I am the Executive Chef & Culinary Teacher for Fairfield High School and Fairfield Suisun Adult School. I am a firm believer that I will never know my place and I will never fall in line, because my place is outside the lines.
My style of cooking is basically running the gambit. I love Global Soul food and I love preparing intricate detailed cuisine, as well as simple proper cooking. My greatest joy is getting to share that with my one hundred and sixty high school students that I teach every day and my sixteen adult school students. I didn't let a disability keep me from my dream. Don't let it keep you from yours.
