In partnership with The Nutrition Center, The Mount is presenting a four day Food Adventures summer program June 30 - July 3. Food Adventures at The Mount occurs over the course of a four days: Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration and cost is for all four classes together (General child $215; Mount member child $200) . The enrollment deadline is June 22. Join us for a hands-on cooking series designed especially for school-age children (ages 7-14) located on the beautiful grounds of The Mount. Children will learn basic cooking skills and nutrition concepts while focusing on ideas that were near and dear to Edith Wharton's heart; a reverence for tradition, the importance of home cooking, gathering around a beautiful table, and eating mindful, sociable meals with friends and family. Food Adventures will provide all of the ingredients for a memorable summer workshop that encourages kids to explore seasonal eating, the magic of whole foods, making healthy and delicious desserts, and one of Wharton's favorite elements of entertaining: menu planning. We will take advantage of the bounty of local produce as well as the historic setting in which kids can embrace the fun of food.
