TEEN BATTLE CHEFS

stirring up change this summer! 

The Teen Battle Chef program empowers youth to become ambassadors for healthy eating, through hands-on cooking activities.

 

Teen Battle Chef is a ten session program that teaches teens and “tweens” how to cook using fresh, healthful ingredients. Each session two teams of young chefs learn culinary skills, nutrition, team work and leadership as they make (and taste) delicious multicultural recipes and present their finished products. The chefs learn about the county of origin of the recipes, experience new foods and flavors and harvest naturally grown ingredients straight from the farm. Ultimately each team researches and creates a recipe to prepare for the “final battle.”  Family members and special guests are invited to celebrate with the teams at their final presentations.

 

Graduates of the program can go on to become CHEFS (Culinary Health Educators from Spoutwood), leading healthy food demonstrations at community events, schools, health fairs, farmers markets and at Spoutwood Farm events and festivals
