Kids’ Farm-to-Table 101 (Grades 4 - 6)                           
Instructor: Kathy Oberman Tracy


Farm to Table is especially designed with young chefs in mind. Participants join Chef Kathy in Tim's kitchen to learn new recipes based on the seasons. Our Jr. Chefs develop lifelong culinary skills, including knife handling, baking, and using a variety of kitchen appliances and gadgets. They leave the series feeling more seasonally aware and more confident in the kitchen. And, of course, eating what we cook is always part of the fun!
