Making Butter and Ricotta With Chef Clemence


Today here at Seeds to Plate we had an exciting guest come and teach our students about chemistry in a unique way. Chef Clemance Gosett of La Gourmandise Cooking School visited our 8th grade Chemistry classes for a lesson of “Cooking with Chemistry”. The fun and interactive lesson touched upon mechanical reactions, catalysts, and acids/bases. All the while Chef Gosett was demonstrating how to create ricotta cheese and butter to use for a yummy and easy snack!

More Kale, Please!

UCLA Interns help blend smoothies with yogurt, juice and bananas after harvesting kale from the garden with students. After initial hesitancy on the addition of kale and requests for "just an orange or something", 100% of the students finished the entire cup. A zero waste day and introduction to the health benefits and good taste of kale! Special thanks to Whole Foods for donating the smoothie ingredients!

Salad With a Side of "Wonder"

Thanks to Harvest of the Month from the Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention (N.E.O.P) program our teachers were able to feed a fresh salad to hundreds of students on Friday, with many coming back for seconds. Here, students are enjoying salad while reading the novel, Wonder.
