After School

Culinary Club

Chop, Flavor, Heat, and Eat!

In our newest offering this Spring, students will learn essential, healthy and long lasting culinary skills from local chef, restaurant owner and caterer, Britt Galler. Participants will learn how to effectively and safely use kitchen tools, prep ingredients, flavor and seasoning techniques to cook and create delicious meals. A new subject will be introduced every week, ranging from soups to sweets! Students will leave each session with a new recipe, cooking skill, and goodies to share with the family. Students will gain confidence and independence in the kitchen and perhaps they even start cooking meals for the entire family?!



Instructed by Chef, Restaurant Owner and Caterer, Britt Galler: Britt holds degrees in both Culinary Arts and Organic Farming. She has been successfully running sustainable kitchens for over 25 years as a chef, restaurant owner and caterer. Acre Gourmet’s first school menu was based on Britt’s years in kitchen management at The Esalen Institute of Big Sur. For over a decade, she has channeled her experience and creative energy into managing the operations of Acre Gourmet’s Real School Lunch™ program. Britt was also a former partner of Acre Coffee in the North Bay. Britt is mom to TEA 4th grader, who continues to help her understand the nuance of feeding children well.
