Farmer’s Market Driven (Preschool) Cooking Projects

JudiAU | Mar 3, 2011 03:06 PM

I need some cooking project ideas for my son’s cool preschool. They need to be fairly healthy, made in a small group, and be made primarily by the children. No dietary restrictions in this group except nuts.

And yes, seasonal, organic, and farmer’s market driven. Not ever project, but a group shops for snack weekly at a year round farmer’s market and there is usually a cooking project that emerges or is planned around the shopping.

Yes, my friends, even the preschools these days have a market driven menus. We are in Los Angeles so the markets still have winter produce as well as a riot of citrus, early spring veg (favas, asparagus, snap peas), avocados, and berries. They also have a fairly large garden with several citrus trees, herbs, and in season carrots/tomatoes/asparagus, lettuce, and pole beans.
