    Just for youth: Four, 2 ½-hour classes teaching hands-on kitchen and cooking skills.  Each week will have a different ingredient focus while students work on knife skills, use of kitchen equipment, and all around kitchen safety. Participants will prepare, cook and enjoy their creations, all from seasonal, organic, local and sustainably grown ingredients, at the end of each class. All students, even those comfortable in the kitchen, are encouraged to take this 101 series, as each subsequent series will be built on these foundational skills.

    Week 1: Fruits & Vegetables, their individual characteristics, and how to use them in soups & salads.

    Week 2: Dairy, Eggs & Grains with emphasis on breakfast.

    Week 3: Proteins, animal & plant-based with emphasis on lunch and/or dinner. This class will cover several methods of cooking, such as blanching, sautéing & pan-frying.
