What's Included

Get cooking with this hands-on garden-based cooking class! This class finds inspiration in seasonal ingredients from the farmers’ markets, as well as the Food Network’s famed Iron Chef Challenge. Each week students are introduced to a fresh “Secret Ingredient”, such as basil, carrots, garlic, or strawberries, and learn about its journey from seedling to the table. Using all 5 senses to explore the ingredients, students learn about their nutritional, cultural, and culinary properties. Our young chefs may take a trip to the “Cucumber Spa” before making Indian raita, become “Bell Pepper Detectives” whipping up a batch of tri-pepper quesadillas, or make a cornhusk doll and sweet corncakes to better understand the role maize played in early Native American society. Students compile a cookbook of the class recipes, and have the opportunity to bring home seeds to plant in their own garden! Event hours: 3:15pm - 4:15pm Grades 1 through 5 Only
