Teaching Youth to Cook Local  

The past two years Field to Fork Challenges were a huge success! Participants had a chance to learn where their food comes from, how to cook with locally grown foods, and why farms and agriculture play such an important role in our communities and society. The participants showcased their food passions with an amazing array of delicious BC grown recipes such as Swiss Chard and Beef Quiche, Lemon Dill Lamb Kabobs with Tzatziki, BC Heirloom Tomato Tart, BC Blueberry Skillet Cake, and Honey Peach Pie. A recap of the 2020 and 2021 Field to Fork Challenges (including recipe books and videos) can be found at www.4hbc.ca and www.bcaitc.ca.
