Growing Taste Buds!

Yesterday I had a riot at Evergreen Brickworks teaching 'Growing Taste Buds' with Kate Leinweber. (check this nutritionista gal out!) The kids were fantastic and a lot of learning and fun was had! To learn more about this program go here:

Growing Taste Buds! At Evergreen Brickworks!

They got their hands dirty right away planting some heirloom tomatoes! After tomatoes we started to cook! In season at Sosnicki's is the Ostergruss radishes, so chopping and pan frying was one station's job, making 'cabbage plates' was another task, sautéing the radish greens, pan frying sweet corn and making a bechamel cheese sauce rounded out all the jobs the kids took part in! We chatted about the ingredients as we cooked then everyone got to eat! It was a great class and I will definitely teach and assist with more in the future! Great bunch of kids! A truly great facility and great program!
