Chef Shawn Cirkiel to Showcase Culinary Skills at
Prevention Magazine’s Inaugural R3 Summit 

Chef Shawn Cirkiel of renowned parkside, the backspace and olive & june will appear at the first-ever Prevention R3 Summit in Austin, TX on Saturday, October 26th from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, 701 W. Riverside Drive.

Says Prevention, “Our first-ever Prevention R3 Summit will bring the pages of the magazine to life through an immersive and engaging series of events. We’re bringing together the leading minds in health & wellness who will share what’s new and noteworthy through the lens of six pillars: The Healthy Epicurean, Health, Beauty, Peak Performance, Mind-Body, and Happiness.”

Cirkiel will perform two cooking demos at The Healthy Epicurean Cooking Stage: “Austin’s Own Hot Dog Toppings & Healthy Grilling” demo from 11 to 11:30 am and “The Healthy Grilling Demo” from 1 to 1:30 PM. Using primarily locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, these interactive sessions will showcase Cirkiel’s signature style while teaching attendees how to cook delicious, healthy and easy meals of their own.

Cirkiel’s devotion to his community and nutrition is evident by his involvement in many projects, including an initiative at Austin’s Highland Park Elementary, where he has helped develop healthy-eating, exercise and gardening programs. Cirkiel is also a founding chef of the Sustainable Food Center’s Farmers Market in downtown Austin, an SFC Breadwinner and a board member and secretary for the Sixth Street Austin Association, which has been fundamental in raising funds to restore the legendary district.
