The Sustainable Kitchen, professional development program for culinary students and food professionals
This workshop is an intensive immersion in farm to table ingredients. **If you are not a food service professional please see note below.
In the rolling hills above Lake Roosevelt near Colville, WA, Quillisascut Farm™ offers food professionals and culinary students a unique opportunity to experience the farm-to-table connection first hand.
During week-long programs, participants will observe goats being milked, make cheese, help care for farm animals, transplant vegetables, and harvest produce from the gardens. Students also visit neighboring organic farms and hear presentations about market gardening. Lively group discussions about food systems, culture and globalization round out the experience.
Each day, students will work with a chef to prepare lunch and dinner using only ingredients from the garden and products from local farms. Dinner is a culmination of the day’s work–a time to feast on the bounty of the farm, reflect on the discussions of the day, and build community around the table.
** We save a few spaces in each workshop for home cooks. If you have any questions please call or email
