Students Gather for Camp Culinary

Over the past few days, The Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center was busy hosting the 2nd Annual, 2022 Camp Culinary Program! This state-wide program is a partnership between the LSU AgCenter’s 4-H Youth Development Program and The Family & Consumer Science Department.

27 youth from across the state were in attendance, and we had a blast learning about The History of Cajun & Creole Culinary Cuisine, and campers participated in many engaging lessons featuring topics including food & kitchen safety, safe knife skills, and covered many different culinary techniques, equipment, and concepts.

Dally Bell is one of those attending from Red River parish.  She is learning lots of good cooking skills!

The program was offered during this time of year in order to further prepare youth participants to assist with Holiday meal preparations in the upcoming months, and to advance the retention of our rich Cajun Culinary History.

A very special thanks to our parent volunteers, Camp Staff and our talented instructors: LSU AgCenter Area Nutrition Agents and Formally Trained Chefs Quincy Vidrine & Kimberlyn Jones, along with LSU AgCenter Area Nutrition Agent Breanna Stabb and FCS Regional Coordinator Jennifer Duhon!
