6th to 8th graders will learn everything they need to know to feel comfortable following new recipes or making up their own dishes in the kitchen. They will learn techniques from knife skills to proper searing, braising, roasting, and baking. All this takes place on Roots to River organic vegetable farm and in our spacious class kitchen and outdoor grill and pizza oven.
There will be opportunities to learn about farming and picking vegetables as well as cooking them. We will concentrate on the various aspects of cooking chicken, including boning a whole chicken, and cooking fish, including a sous vide method that doesn't require special equipment.
We will create various desserts using classic egg techniques like making meringues and ice cream, as well as cakes and tarts. The kids will be able to visit the animals on the property which include a llama, an alpaca, and a donkey.
$750 per teenager.
Monday through Friday 10 am to 2 pm. (kids should wear closed toed shoes)
