A group of teens is learning about nutrition, science and art through a high school cooking program in Plainfield. Students at The Central Vermont High School Initiative prepare a community lunch once a week. The techniques learned range from preparing fresh vegetables to churning and sculpting butter. The students also enjoy the experience of sharing their creations with the local community. Melissa Pasanen, who writes for the Savorvore Section of The Burlington Free Press, recently visited the class.
The VPR Cafe is produced in collaboration with The Burlington Free Press and is made possible on VPR by City Market in Burlington.
