Chef Ron Ben-Israel teaches Brooklyn students to make healthy desserts

Celebrity pastry chef Ron Ben-Israel took a break from judging contestants’ creative confections on his Food Network show “Sweet Genius” to host a healthy dessert class for young students at P.S. 59 in Bed-Stuy on April 4.

Chef Ron Ben-Israel teaches healthy dessert class with City Harvest in BrooklynAbout a dozen elementary school students gathered around a table in the school’s cafeteria to take part in a step-by-step demonstration of how to make a healthy apple crisp. Equipped with their own cutting boards and plastic knives, the kids listened carefully as Chef Ron explained how to cut the apples and measure out each ingredient. All of the ingredients, including apples, corn flakes, oatmeal, and chocolate chips, were from the local grocery store, making it easy for the children to reproduce the recipe at home.

Ben-Israel visited through the school through a partnership with City Harvest, a Manhattan-based nonprofit organization that works to end hunger in New York City by rescuing food and giving it to those living in poverty.
