Dekalb Farm | Weekly Cooking Demos with our Teen Battle Chefs

First, let me take a moment to thank everyone for coming out to support us on our opening day, despite the heat that made our veggies wilt and water evaporate as it left the hose. Our Teen Battle Chefs impressed everyone with their prowess as we hosted our first cooking demo of the season. With their help we served up a fresh-as-you-can-get sampling straight from the The Dekalb Farm, a mere 30 ft away! Now that’s hyper-local.

Throughout the season we will be hosting weekly cooking demonstrations with our favorite interns, Deb and Chima. They join us from Family Cooks Productions, a nationally recognized non-profit that brings the culinary arts and food education to public schools for all ages. We will be serving up delicious, farm-fresh snacks every Saturday at high noon, occasionally joined by the celeb chefs of the Dekalb Market. For pictures from last weeks demo, check out this awesome pictorial and article from Markets of New York!

If you can’t join us on Saturdays, don’t fret! That’s not the only opportunity you will have to discover new recipes because our friends at BBox Radio will be recording every moment and archiving them on their website.
