ChefMyself workshop gathers Seniors in the kitchen

On 15th October 2015 Fraunhofer Portugal held a workshop with senior participants of the previously held ChefMyself user research, ideation and testing phases. This event coincided with the World Food Day and was a way to celebrate seniors’ participation in the project and an opportunity to requite them with something that could be instantly used in their daily lives. After an introduction by FhP and a presentation of the work done for the last year, as well as the trails and dissemination activities, the following program has been offered to the participants:

1. A discussion of nutrition myths with a professional nutritionist.

2. Discussion with a chef concerning healthy ingredients and ways of preparing them.

3. Preparation of a complete, healthy yet simple meal with the chef’s help (all participants took their recipe instructions home).

4. Tasting of the prepared meal.
