This dual program will engage students in the miracle of seed to harvest, enhance their understanding of different flavor profiles, and connect them to the creativity and enjoyment of those efforts through hands-on culinary instruction. In the garden, students get to plant, care for and harvest food from Usdan’s fruit and vegetable gardens, as well as eggs from Usdan’s chickens, with a gardening specialist. Students will utilize the bounty of our gardens with a cooking instructor to create a variety of dishes for all to enjoy. In the kitchen there will be an emphasis on knife skills and safety, cooking weights and measurement and both following and writing recipes. Please note that our kitchen is not kosher and if you have any dietary restrictions please contact us as soon as possible. Additional fee of $600 for 7-weeks, $350 for 4-weeks and $250 for 3-weeks.
