Young Gardener’s Program Sponsors Food Demonstration
As part of the Young Gardener’s Program, a food demonstration was presented to 30 scholars from Higher Achievement’s after-school program at Arundel Elementary-Middle School on March 5, 2014. The demonstration was presented by Chef Crisp, a local of Baltimore, and currently working with New Era Academy in Cherry Hill to create a farm-table-classroom.
Chef Crisp showed the students how to make vegetarian jambalaya, a staple New Orleans dish as a symbol of Mardi Gras. The students took an active role helping Chef Crisp throw in herbs and other spices and stiring the dish occasionally in the wok. The students really enjoyed learning how to make their own healthy meal. Many of them took the recipe home to share with their families.
Many thanks to Chef Crisp, and we hope she can join us again soon!
