JUNGLE TO TABLE
Our culinary program teaches the science and art of cooking at a professional level with local ingredients. In the kitchen, expect to experiment with presentation, tropical foods, cheese making, and canning sauces and jams. Outside of the kitchen, be ready to get your hands dirty. We will constantly tour farms, help with harvests, develop partnerships with neighboring farms, and optimize our kitchen’s performance.
