Dale Campbell is a familiar name to all of us who listen to Cooking In The Dark. On his show, Dale shares recipes while making them as well. Many blind people cook, but many are not willing to use a stove or an oven. Why are people afraid? How does this impact on them nutritionally? What steps can someone take to become more comfortable with using a stove and more comfortable when dealing with hot foods? Where does this fear come from? Are we, as blind people, too concerned about how food looks to sighted people? What ideas have we bought in to that don't matter? How does one find the most nutritious foods when shopping? How can we learn to be more savvy consumers? What can we do to promote safety while cooking? Dale will answer these and other questions tonight and share hints and products that will help us in the kitchen. How did Dale become so comfortable with cooking?
