Everyone needs to know how to prepare nourishing food
It’s around the table and in the preparation of food that we learn about ourselves and about the world
– Alice Waters
Cool Chefs, Cornucopia Project’s original youth cooking series, was founded on the belief that food is fundamental, not only because it sustains our bodies, but also because it can feed our spirit and our sense of community.
Our kitchen programs bring students from school gardens to the next steps along the food journey. Partnering with local professional chefs, we equip youth with the knowledge and skills to prepare nourishing foods in creative and sustainable ways alongside their peers.
Cool Chefs, At Home
Cool Chefs, At Home is our updated youth cooking class, designed to bring the culinary experience home while we wait for a safe return to after school classes.
With this kit, young chefs can prepare their own Pizza Marghertia and Mesclun Salad with a Lemon Vinaigrette. A surprise dessert that will help young chefs expand their food palete, is included!
Cornucopia Project has partnered with Chefs, Artisans and Establishments to offer a variety of exceptional learning opportunities to young adults.
Interns are eligible to receive school credit during their culinary training. Internships may lead to employment.
