As part of the Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN), an international network of young people who bring about changes in the field of food production and consumption, we are starting the Youth Culinary Project.
This project will be a seasonal, four-part culinary workshop series spanning a full year focusing on taste education, seasonality, and culinary skills. Each class will build on the skills from the prior classes, and will culminate with a public tasting at the People’s Market. Additionally, each workshop will end with an optional home-cooked, sit-down meal open to the parents showcasing the student’s skills and epicurious delights. Our first workshop of the series will take place this summer, celebrating the beginning of the harvest.
The Youth Culinary Project is open to teenagers, though younger students will be considered. Please contact us if you are interesting in participating as a student or sponsor.
