4-H’ers learned how to cook crepes, wontons, fajitas, and spinach macaroni while learning proper food preparation, food safety, and nutrition at 4-H Cooking Like a Chef held in Bamberg County July 12-14. Participants put their food and nutrition skills to the test during the Mystery Challenge presented during the parent program at the end of camp.
Bamberg County 4-H Teen Leaders attended the 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Summit at the Center for Advanced Technical Studies in Chapin in January. The team learned culinary arts skills from local chefs, culinary arts students from the Center and Clemson University Department of Food, Nutrition and Packaging Science, and Extension Professionals from Clemson and SC State University. They were responsible for planning and leading the local summer program.
