Phipps Conservatory Opens Botany Hall Demonstration Kitchen

Please Share

Phipps Conservatory is now offering garden to table classes and camps in their new state-of-the-art Botany Hall. The new hands-on culinary programs will be available for all ages, year round!  Participants will get to discover new ways to prepare foods while supporting the Phipps mission of advanced sustainability and human and environmental well being.

This sounds absolutely amazing to me.  I’m always looking for new idea and cooking techniques.
