Jr Iron Chef VT Cooking Club on WDEV's Vermont Viewpoint

Posted on June 10, 2021

“We’re surrounded by so much fresh, wonderful food here in Vermont… but all that doesn’t do much good if when we’re getting home we’re just pulling processed food out of a box. Knowing how to prepare some of that fresh amazingness goes a long way in appreciating what we have here and getting the most from it. And we can learn about this preparation and nutrition even when we’re young!” –Ric Cengeri

WDEV's Vermont Viewpoint shares the story of Jr Iron Chef VT’s covid pivot to a cooking club! On the line, youth chef Raha, King Street Center Education Director Deena Murphy, and Jr Iron Chef VT Coordinator Kerrie Mathes.

Thank you to all the youth chefs, sponsors, in-kind donors, and video creators who made the Jr Iron Chef VT Cooking Club possible this year! We look forward to celebrating local food, school nutrition programs, and culinary creativity with you all next school year.
