Cooking Workshop

On October 10th, Turf hosted a cooking workshop for students from the Urban Assembly Academy of History & Citizenship for Young Men (in the South Bronx). Students learned basic cooking skills, became familiar with traditional Mexican foods, and learned the importance of eating local foods. Turf’s Chef Iris and Erika (our high school intern) guided students through the process of making quesadillas, salsa, and guacamole with fresh ingredients from Turf’s CSA Program. We ended the cooking workshop by eating the food we prepared and sharing favorite food and cooking stories.
