The East Helena Food/Culture Hub (yes, it’s a Myrna Loy creative placemaking project) just completed a year-long series of cooking classes for kids in East Helena. Chef Micah Eller has taught students knife skills, kitchen etiquette, food safety, gardening tips, presentation–and most importantly–how to impress their families with healthy home-made foods!
There is still room in our last 2 week-long summer cooking classes, starting July 8 and July 31. Go here for more info.
How does food change a community? From the inside, and from the very start. The culinary arts build social connections, a sense of place, and the foundation for long, happy lives. And for some of these kids, chef skills might open the door to a successful, fun, creative career.
