Lauren DeSantis Helps Local Family of Quintuplets Take on a New Meal

Washington, D.C. - “Capital Cooking” host Lauren DeSantis features local Thompson quintuplets for her first filming since November, sponsored by the Links, Inc. with the help of Altomease Kennedy. The upcoming show features DeSantis teaching the quintuplets useful and delicious recipes that are kid friendly and easy for all ages.

The show will feature such recipes as spicy buffalo chicken pizza and a healthy fruit salad with honey yogurt sauce. The Thompsons and DeSantis hope the show helps teach other kids to help out in the kitchen.

Jacqueline Thompson gave birth to sextuplets in 1997 and now is a single mother raising quintuplets without the donations they once survived upon. The help of DeSantis provides the now teenagers with some valuable tips on how to create meals to help their mother at home.

Watch the “Capital Cooking with the Quintuplets” and enjoy the fun interaction between DeSantis and the Thompson family.

Capital Cooking is the first television show of its kind. A series exploring the culinary and cultural riches of our nation’s Capital and is hosted by Lauren DeSantis.

Capital Cooking highlights cooking traditions of regional cuisine from all areas of the country as well as international dishes. Throughout the series, DeSantis will incorporate entertaining tips into the shows, will cook with local chefs, and will demonstrate how to make recipes with ingredients that viewers can find at local grocery stores and farmers’ markets.
