Camp 2015

Week 6: Chef ROY G. BIV: A colorful culinary exploration.

It was a hot, yet great start to week 6 at Culinary Camp! This week’s theme involves all the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. The campers started of Monday in the garden, planting watermelons and canteloupe in the high tunnel! After gardening, the campers headed into the kitchen to prepare their lunch for the day. Lunch included Moroccan chicken kebabs, baked pita, and red pepper hummus. It was a great celebration of the color red, especially with all that delicious paprika! In the afternoon, the campers made their own sack lunches for Tuesday’s field trip!

On Tuesday, we began our day at Kraut Run, a sustainable garden/farm located in Wentzville. The campers assisted Farmer Ryan to clear brush and vines from an area in which they were later going to move the chicken coop to. This would allow the chickens to have fresh grass and bugs to eat from!

In the afternoon on Tuesday, the campers created natural food dyes using vegetables and spices to color their buttercream! This icing will be used on Wednesday to decorate the sugar cookies the campers baked!
