Farm to fork to classroom

JACKSON, Wyo. — Autumn is a time of harvest and bounty; plus, the cold weather makes food taste even better. Join Slow Food in the Tetons and Central Wyoming College for a celebration of local, sustainable food on October 4 and 5 at the Farm to Fork Festival. The festival kicks off Friday evening with a Farm to Fork Harvest Dinner, prepared by the Trio culinary team, held at Trio.

Saturday, October 5 is packed with food festivities, starting with the Farmer’s Market starting at 11 a.m. Throughout the day, workshops will take place covering everything from fermenting to composting, and even a Peruvian cooking class. Many of the workshops require pre-registration, so be sure to register online. In the evening, the film Right to Harm, will be shown at the Center for the Arts with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.

Hosted by Slow Food in the Tetons and by Central Wyoming College, this event also brings attention to the Culinary Program at CWC. This program is exclusively based in Jackson, Wyoming. If the single day of workshops wasn’t enough, perhaps a certification in Culinary Arts is the next step! Participants of this program will learn the foundations and advanced techniques from courses such as stocks and soups, food preparation of meats and baking to garde manger.

The program utilizes the resources available in Jackson to provide internships at the valley’s leading resorts and restaurants. During the shoulder seasons, students will study and take courses. Learn more about CWC’s Culinary program here.
