Apple pie demonstration
BRATTLEBORO- The public is invited to the River Garden, 157 Main Street, at noon on Monday, September 17, for a special treat prepared by the graduating group of Strolling of the Heifers’ Farm-To-Table Culinary Apprenticeship students. The class will be showing off their skills with an apple pie demonstration. They will be using apples they picked at Scott Farm in Dummerston to make delicious pies to share at the event, which is free and open to everyone. This group of graduates has enjoyed their apprenticeship at such establishments as: Against the Grain, True North Granola, Brattleboro Food Co-op, Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery, Turning Point, and Loaves and Fishes.
Strolling of the Heifers’ Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship program is free to participants who meet income and employment status qualifications, including veterans. It includes classroom time, as well as paid on-the-job experience at restaurants and institutional kitchens. The aim of the program, says Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of Strolling of the Heifers, is to place all participants into permanent culinary employment at the end of the program.
The program is in its fourth year and has been successful at placing graduates in full-time employment: 90% of graduates from previous years are still employed.
