Cooking Adventures Coming Up!
Goat Greeting & Learning Garden Salad @ LexFarm
Spend the morning with Tim Hines from LexFarm as he shows us what it takes to produce real food! By 10AM, the farmers will be many hours into harvesting, and you get to see the real deal- the ins & outs of the operation! Did you know tomato plants can grow taller than you? You might have a garden in your backyard…how will it compare to a working farm? After the tour, we will harvest a salad from the learning garden, whip up a vinaigrette, and finish the morning with a goat visit at neighboring Silk Fields Farm.

Does your young chef have a passion for chocolate?
Wednesday, October 3rd, 4:30-5:45 pm, Sudbury, MA
Join Tom and Monica of Goodnow Farm to learn how they make chocolate on their 225 year old farm in Sudbury. They start with cacao beans and sugar, and perform every step of the chocolate making process in-house, including carefully hand wrapping each bar.
They believe that great chocolate is “true to the bean,” in that the flavors apparent in the bar reflect the flavors hidden in the bean. Tom and Monica are very proud of their chocolate and they have offered to give our Kids Cooking Green kids, a tour around the farm and the chocolate making facility! Kids will have a chance to see the raw beans, and sort them before they are roasted. Did you know that chocolate comes from a fruit? Learn what the term winnowing is, are how to make chocolate smooth by adding cocoa butter. And, of course, tasting on this tour is encouraged!
