Ready, Set, Cook!

Fighting childhood obesity one recipe at a time

Ready, Set, Cook! is HAP’s campaign to address childhood obesity by teaching parents and children how to make good decisions about nutrition and meal preparation. We’ve partnered with Fox 2 Detroit to help promote healthy cooking to families across metro Detroit. Together, with help from Chef Kristi Zebrowski, we’re making an impact in our local community.

Meet Chef Kristi Zebrowski

Chef Kristi Zebrowski is a professionally trained graduate of Le Cordon Bleu of Chicago and has worked at Michelin-starred restaurants in Rome and Chicago. She leads our Ready, Set, Cook! segments on Fox 2 Detroit.

She’s worked at some of the finest restaurants in the country and polished her culinary skills while working in Rome.

Her talent for developing delicious, health-conscious meals caught the attention of HAP's worksite wellness group, and she teamed up with HAP to produce a cooking demonstration on how to prepare easy, gluten-free meals for families.

Since then, Chef Kristi has worked with HAP to educate members, employer groups and community partners about the ease of cooking food simply with quality ingredients in a way that doesn't sacrifice taste. 

Zebrowski is also an experienced personal chef who has prepared menus for clients with vegan and gluten-free diets. Her hands-on experience working with clients who have special dietary needs helps her create tasty recipes that focus on nutrition and health.

Zebrowski is a strong advocate of the farm-to-table movement and believes that small changes can lead to positive health outcomes. Most importantly, she believes the whole family can be part of meal preparation.

Look for her during the Saturday morning broadcast on Fox 2 Detroit the first and third Saturday of every month. She will be joined by student chefs to show Fox 2 Detroit viewers how to cook delicious and nutritious meals for the whole family.
