Bamberg 4-H Healthy Habits Team Attends Summit

Shannon B. Herndon, County Extension 4-H Agent

Bamberg County 4-H Members attended South Carolina 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Summit at the Center for Advanced Technical Studies in Chapin in January. The four-member 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.

Participants made manicotti with fresh crepes, catfish filets with corn salsa, turkey wontons, and spinach macaroni and cheese while learning proper food preparation and cooking skills. The team will teach their favorite recipes to local youth at a Cooking Like a Chef Camp tentatively planned for the summer.
