Today at All Peoples' our friends from RootDown LA came and talked with us about food, specifically the types of food we grow in our garden, and showed us how to to cook what we grow! We talked about whole foods and why we're more inclined to eat processed foods then whole foods, and then we learned techniques to help us cook our whole foods to make them delicious. Not all of us were sold on vegetables when they got there, but they managed to make believers out of us.
And at the end we got to enjoy our creations!Click Here to see a slideshow of the fun!

School harvests food from the garden!
Susan and Chef Zadi were so thrilled with the students that they have volunteered to return at least once per month to lead cooking demonstrations and help students grow their healthy vegetables in their school garden. Areas like the Mar Vista Housing Projects are deprived of many healthy options for food, but Ecole de Cuisine that may all change. In exchange for their help, some of herbs and vegetables like thyme, mint, oregano and Swiss chard will donated to their culinary school. View a slideshow of their visit here.
