Celebrity chef Michael Mina to give cooking lesson to Detroit firefighters

DETROIT - Celebrity chef Michael Mina wants to give some Detroit firefighters a few pointers in the kitchen.

Four Detroit firefighters are to visit Mina's restaurant, Saltwater, for a hands-on cooking lesson Thursday.

Firefighters typically have to purchase and cook their own meals in the firehouse.

So, Mina plans to show the firefighters how to spice up their dishes, demonstrate a few healthy options and work with them on some new tricks to impress their colleagues.
