        Healthy Eating | Cooking Across Generations

        Jalani Phillips, Jr. (age 10, U.S. Virgin Islands) describes the origins of his Healthy Lunchtime Challenge winning recipe for Hurricane Lentil and Salmon Patties, and his mother talks about their family’s cooking traditions, in this video from WGBH. Jalani explains why he would rather be a chef than president of the United States. After explaining why he and his mother frequently use onions in their dishes, he describes some of the cultural recipes that have inspired him to cook. His mother explains that she learned to cook at a young age and thought it was important for Jalani to learn, too.
