Camp 2013

Mediterranean Week

It's a beautiful day in the garden!

Welcome to culinary camp! This week is all about the Mediterranean. The delicious cuisine from this region is a favorite of many and incorporates lots and lots of fresh and natural foods. Some popular dishes and items include hummus, homemade pita bread, zaatar spiced meatballs, homemade greek yogurt, tabouli, Mediterranean cucumber salad, and spanakopita!

Be sure to come hungry on Friday because all of these foods and many others will be served 🙂

Besides cooking and working on our culinary skills, campers have been spending time outside working and running around in SLU’s very own garden. We have planted potatoes and harvested a number of fruits and vegetables which will be available at the Fresh Gatherings Farmer’s Market on Friday afternoon. So be sure to stop by and check it out!

The rain did not hold as back yesterday from harvesting some delicious peaches and blackberries from Braeutigam’s Farm over the river in Illinois. Boy, were they juicy!
