Chef to School
February 25, 2009
Background: When students have opportunities to grow food and taste fresh fruitsand vegetables, they are more likely to adopt life-long healthy diets. Chefs can playa major role in this process by providing hands-on taste testing and cookingdemonstrations for students featuring local foods.Objective: This training will provide chefs with a better understanding how todeliver information to children and best practices in working in non-traditionalcooking environments such as classrooms, gardens and auditoriums. Chefs will havean opportunity to:1) Learn best practices in delivering taste tests and hands-on cooking lessons forschools that feature fresh, local food.2) Connect with Atlanta schools that hope to foster a relationship with a chef, andhost taste testings or cooking demos at these schools that promote local foods, wellness and/or connect with their school garden.

“There’s a direct connection between the health of the soil, the health of the plants, the
health of the animals, and you as an eater.
” –
