Latinitas benefit “Para Tu Salud” to feature Chef Andrew Brooks & Nutrition Counselor Nina Beucler Rebstock

Oh food. How amazing and irresistible it can be. But it’s even better when it’s healthy. This is exactly what the next Latinitas fundraiser is all about; a mouth watering delicious and healthy meal for a good cause.

Chef Andrew Brooks and nutritionist counselor Nina Beucler Rebstock team up to host Para Tu Salud (For Your Health) for Latinitas Benefit. The night will consist of a dining and food demonstration. The duo will prepare healthy meals including tomato and olive salad, winter vegetable salad, peach and plum gallette with black pepper and a signature cocktail paired with artisan bread and cheese. Guests will get to taste the prepared meals in addition to getting desert and wine. Aside from leaving with a full stomach, attendees will take home all the recipes and receive tips on how to eat healthy.

The fundraiser demonstration will be held from 6-8 p.m. November 8 at East Fourth Gallery and Art Studio located at 3401 E. 4th St. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here. All proceeds will go to Latinitas Magazine.
