Chef in the Classroom lessons build students' confidence and excitement in the kitchen, teaching them valuable skills about cooking fresh, healthy meals using local ingredients. This program provides valuable information about agriculture, nutrition, sustainability, and what it's like to have a culinary career. Students are encouraged to taste, smell, touch, and appreciate fresh and healthy ingredients, and are empowered to bring the recipes and ideas home to their families. Kids learn to make everything from calzones to traditional Mexican sopes - all from scratch and utilizing locally grown ingredients.
REAP coordinates Chef in the Classroom at Sherman Middle School and East High School, connecting chefs with hundreds of students.
The Chef in the Classroom Benefit Breakfast is Saturday, February 27 at the Madison Senior Center during the Dane County Farmers' Market.
