Event description

Description

Enroll your junior chefs ­— ages 7 to 11 — in Kids Cook at the Market classes, where they’ll cultivate culinary skills and experience a cornucopia of farm-fresh foods. At Kids Cook classes, kids learn about the seasonality of food, meet local farmers, and prepare ingredients purchased fresh at the market. Classes include shopping the market for recipe ingredients, hands-on instruction, a shared meal, and recipes to take home so students can share what they learn with family and friends.

Classes are held at the PSU Farmers Market on Saturdays from 8:30 am to 10 am, June 17 through August 26, 2017, and are $10 per child, per class.

This year’s instructor is Samantha Petersen, a chef and volunteer with The Portland Kitchen. Samantha has been working in the industry for 10+ years. Growing up in California, she was inspired by chefs like Alice Waters and the farm to table food movement. After attending Merritt's Culinary Arts program in Oakland, she moved to Portland to help open The Hazel Room, local brunch spot.
