Cooking with local chefs!

Every Tuesday and Thursday, we partner with a local professional chef for the summer program.  Using the produce we harvest at the farm, the youth make lunch with the different chefs.  With each guest chef, the crew learn more recipes and improve on their cooking skills as well.

Here are a couple of guests chefs we've had during the summer program:

Adriana Sierra is a personal chef and caterer for her business Organic in Home Cooking; she specializes in cooking for people with food allergies and dietary restrictions.  Adriana truly believes that in order to be healthy, you need to be conscious of everything you put into your body, starting with food.  Adriana showed us how to make pasta salad! 

Eduardo Macotto has always been passionate about the culinary arts.  He is currently the executive chef for the Hilton in Scotts Valley.  Eduardo also likes to create tasty meals using fresh, local ingredients.  During his visit, Eduardo taught us how to make asian inspired lettuce wraps!
