The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) is a worldwide network of young people creating a better future through food.
It unites groups of young food enthusiasts, chefs, activists, students and food producers who participate in public debate about current issues and introduce young people to the world of gastronomy.
Through their unique events and activities, SFYN groups raise awareness about important food issues such as how to feed the world, food waste and sustainable food production and stimulate positive action.
Slow Food in the Tetons is proud to introduce the Youth Culinary Project, one of our contributions to the Slow Food Youth Network.
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.
