Just wanted to share with you something I am thrilled to be a part of. The REAL FOOD REVOLUTION continues!!
Ruth Gresser, friend and chef/owner of Pizzeria Paradiso and I are participating in the Chefs Move to Schools initiative started by First Lady Michelle Obama. We are adopting Takoma Park Middle School and will be there all day Monday, Nov 30, teaching 6th, 7th and 8th graders about REAL food. ..and yes, we’ll be MAKING THE KETCHUP!!! Fermented ketchup, of course. Teaching about the difference between REAL food and fake food, LIVE food and dead food…My favorite subjects! HOORAY!
Look for an article in the Gazette-they’ll be interviewing and filming us that day. I am always happy when I get to do something to positively impact children and their relationship with food. I’ll keep you posted!
