Teen Battle Chef
The Teen Battle Chef program empowers youth to become ambassadors for healthy eating, through hands-on cooking activities. TBC is the flagship program for FamilyCook Productions. This year FamilyCook Productions is partnering with TV's Dr. Oz to bring TBC to over 50 schools across the country. Spoutwood Farm is the model for Farm/CSA Teen Battle Chef programs that are "stirring up change" in Pennsylvania and Maryland.
Teen Battle Chef is an eight session program that teaches teens and "tweens" how to cook using fresh, healthful ingredients. Each week two teams of young chefs learn culinary skills, nutrition, team work and leadership as they make (and taste) delicious multicultural recipes and present their finished products in the weekly "food battles." The chefs learn about the county of origin of the recipes and experience new foods and flavors. Ultimately each team researches and creates a recipe to prepare for the "final battle." Family and special guests are invited to celebrate with the teams at their final presentations. The cost for the eight week program is $80.00 per chef
Spoutwood's Teen Battle Chefs can go on to lead food demonstrations at Spoutwood events, community health fairs, farmers markets, and create garden to table cooking demonstrations during the CSA season. We are also "cooking up" opportunities for Spoutwood Teen Battle Chefs to host other TBC teams in an invitational "cook off."
