We offer classes at over 100 locations across the five boroughs, primarily in after school settings. Our exciting new pilot program is expanding the scope of our offerings to include in-school programs that bring our healthy, seasonally based cooking programs to students during the school day.
We’re currently partnered with P.S. 21, Crispus Attucks school in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Through fundraising with local restaurants in the community, we are joining efforts with the school to raise funds in support of a culinary program.
On Tuesday, October 17th, we brought a group of 22 second grade students into Alice’s Arbor Restaurant on Classon and Fulton. Alice’s Arbor is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers seasonal, flavorful American dishes with an emphasis on farm-to-table fare.
Chef Mike Franzetti taught us how to make a salad dressing from scratch, dice red peppers, and prepare a delicious spinach salad topped with grilled chicken. After completing the recipe, there were smiles all around. “I love spinach!” one young chef exclaimed.
DIne at Alice’s Arbor now through November 1st and your purchase will go towards support ongoing culinary education for the P.S. 21 students! Ask about the spinach salad and try some of their other delicious dishes.
