One dish that we wanted to highlight was our swiss chard slaw that was a big hit!
We recently received a glowing review of our camp experience from the viewpoint of a parent that we just had to share, “Lulu had a pretty good repertoire to begin with, but this class has definitely taught her to enjoy more foods outside her comfort zone, and this past weekend she made pesto and pasta almost on her own!”
Our campers summer cooking & gardening experiences show us all that children can adapt their palates to fresh and nutritious foods as long as they have the right ingredients: supportive and enthusiastic educators, a safe environment, experiential learning opportunities, encouraging parents, and a fun atmosphere all shared amongst their peers.
We highly recommend trying this recipe with your children at home. Put on some good music, aprons and have fun together cooking and trying new foods!
