As part of the City of Irvine’s sustainability goals to reach carbon neutrality by the year 2030, the Environmental Programs division will host an Induction Cooking Workshop and Demonstration Thursday, September 1, at 6 p.m., at the Irvine Fine Arts Center.  

The event, co-hosted by Mayor Farrah N. Khan, will feature local award-winning chef Katie Chin, pictured here, who will demonstrate how to make various ethnically diverse dishes using all-electric induction cooktops, as well as discuss the benefits of switching from a gas range to all-electric. The benefits of induction cooking will also be discussed.  

Using efficient, electric appliances takes advantage of the increasing solar and wind power in the electrical system, and reduces our dependency on dirty sources, which produce gases that contribute to climate change and local air pollution.  

Space is limited for this workshop. Registration is required for the event and can be made at For more information about ways to go electric or contribute to Irvine’s sustainability goals, visit
