America Cooks With Chefs is a health and wellness movement that demonstrates the benefits of healthy cooking by connecting Americans with celebrity chefs and partners including The Clinton Foundation, James Beard Foundation, Weight Watchers, Deloitte, Barilla, Mayo Clinic, Aetna, Ora TV, and Good Housekeeping. Through an educational and entertaining next-generation cooking competition, the initiative provides content and resources to inspire people to make healthier choices in their daily lives.

Along the way, Americans across the country will be inspired by the contestants’ progress through an original video series that captures the action. With their new skills in hand, the contestants will meet again for a Live Cooking Challenge at the Clinton Health Matters Initiative Conference in January 2015. A judging panel made up of chefs, experts, and celebrities will select the best dish in front of a live audience.
