July 17, 2012- A Peach A Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Over the river and through the woods to Braeutigam’s Orchard we go!

Today at Culinary Camp we got a taste of what life is like down on the farm. We ventured over to Braeutigam’s Orchard. The Orchard has been family owned and operated since 1831. Now that’s pretty impressive to me!

We learned the ins-and-outs of what it takes to run a Peach Tree Orchard and all the hard work a farmer does every day. We even got the chance to feed the cow’s, goats, and bunnies that live off the farm’s land.

The best part about this trip was definitely the peach picking. We hopped onto the Farmer’s tractor which took us directly to the orchard. We picked, we climbed, we ate lots of peaches! And let me just say, there’s nothing better than eating a perfectly ripened peach on a warm summer’s day!

Once we returned from our trip, it was back into the kitchen for some Somalian style cooking. We prepared Sambusa which is  a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling. We also made Muufo which is a corn-style bread. Both of these dishes are commonly found in Somalian cuisine.

Lastly, we rounded out the day with preparing our homemade pizza dough and marinara for tomorrow! Get ready for an exciting day of cooking in the garden 🙂
