This week, you will cook a Chocolate Zucchini Cake.

It is mid-summer and our locally grown produce abounds! Time to get into the garden and find interesting ways to incorporate vegetables into our menus. Think you don’t like zucchini? Well, be brave, join Cultivating Cooks, and give it a try in this “sneaky” breakfast cake that features this versatile vegetable. Bet you can’t have just one piece! Ages 4-12. *Younger chefs must have a grown-up with them during the program.

Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program. Click here for Summerland program FAQs.
