The Farmington Valley Health District partnered with FamilyCook last year to bring the TBC program to Canton High School. The experience proved so valuable to the students that the initator, Todd Christopher, a former professional chef and currently a Sanitarian for the Health District, worked his network of educators within four more of the neighboring towns. Todd then organized a FamilyCook training in August to make it possible for 5 local high schools to participate in Teen Battle Chef over the 2010-11 school year! This development was celebrated in a kick off to the "back to school" season with teams of Teen Battle Chefs from the following schools all 'competing' at an event at the Simsbury Farmers Market: Avon, Simsbury, Canton, Granby and Farmington Valley! As the photos below attest, an excellent and educational experience was enjoyed by all!
