At this year's Taste of Atlanta festival, Carnival Cruise Line hosted a Dr. Seuss-themed book reading and cooking demonstration for local children with Atlanta Braves announcer Brian Jordan.
Modeled after the cruise line’s fleetwide Seuss at Sea program operated in conjunction with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the event featured the former two-sport star of the Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Falcons reading the Dr. Seuss classic “Green Eggs and Ham” to dozens of aspiring chefs from the Atlanta-based Young Chefs Academy.
After the book reading, Jordan and Carnival Chef Roshan D’Souza conducted a cooking demonstration of Dr. Seuss-themed dishes served as part of the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends, one of the activities available within Carnival’s Seuss at Sea program.
The book reading and cooking demonstration were part of the cruise line’s sponsorship of the Family Food Zone, renamed Carnival Kids’ Corner for this year’s festival.
In conjunction with the event, Carnival made a donation to Jordan’s charity, The Brian Jordan Foundation, which helps children and their families improve their quality of life.
The Carnival Kids’ Corner programming offered a variety of fun activities, as well as complimentary cooking demonstrations, with Chef D’Souza teaming up with local and national chefs to prepare simple, healthy dishes for children and their families.
