Baton Rouge, LAThe Creating Healthy Enjoyable Foods (C.H.E.F.) Camp will kick-off July 11-15 at the Northshore Technical Community College (NTCC) in Greensburg, La.  Fifteen students ages 10-15 will work through a one-week fast-track course, learning to prepare healthy meals.

“This is our very first time holding a C.H.E.F Camp in St. Helena Parish, and we’re very excited about this opportunity! I’ve been working closely with Extension Associate, Kelli Hollins from the SU Ag Center and Chef Stephen Curry from NTCC to make sure this camp goes off without a hitch,” said SU Ag Center Assistant Area Agent, Nicolette Gordon.

On June 27th Gordon and Chef Curry did a final walk through in preparation to familiarize Gordon and camp volunteers with NTCC’s industrial kitchen.  Chef Curry also discussed safety procedures for handling all equipment that inspiring young chefs will use while attending the camp.  The C.H.E.F. Camp will conclude on July 15th, with a Lunch & Learn fieldtrip to the New Orleans School of Cooking.  Students will watch as some of New Orleans’ most revered chefs’ whip up some of South Louisiana’s savory dishes. 

For more information on the C.H.E.F. Camp, contact Nicolette Gordon in St. Helena on Tuesday and Thursday at 225-222-4136.
