New OKT cooking coach facilitates first cooking event of the season

FrittataOKT’s newest team member, Toni Scott, jumped into her role of cooking coach last Saturday at the season’s first Cook, Eat and Talk event. “I just love to feed people,” Ms. Scott says.  “I especially like to grill, all year long. I grill turkey, vegetables–when I don’t eat vegetables, I feel sluggish.”

Last year, Toni got many of her vegetables from the OKT container garden she tended with her family. However, that wasn’t her first exposure to gardening. She grew up in a health-conscious family. “My dad had a garden behind the garage and mom cooked from scratch for my four brothers, two sisters and me.”

One of the only times Toni got in trouble as a youngster was when she ate some fruit from a neighbor’s tree. She didn’t have any trouble impressing the folks at Saturday’s event. Her nutritious frittata was a little taste of heaven—plus it’s simple to make and used inexpensive ingredients. Click here for the Frittata Recipe.
