Title Urban food production
Date 2006-05
Description From the Proposal: "When eating or preparing a meal, how often do we think about the source of our ingredients? We know it came from a grocery store or food supplier, but where and how was it grown, and by whom? Urban Food Production will provide students with the knowledge to not only become well-rounded chefs and/or restaurateurs, but also inform them of the benefits of growing their own ingredients. Students will learn the rituals that go with planting and harvesting specific crops throughout the seasons. And with these crops, students will then understand the source and benefits of using fresh ingredients. Although a cooking school with numerous gardens is more conducive to a rural setting, Urban Food Production will be located in downtown Salt Lake on 650 South State Street. Salt Lake does not have a dedicated and accredited culinary institute. With the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, numerous ski resorts that welcome guests from all over the world, and food culture becoming more popular, Salt Lake is in need of new chefs. The institute will serve as a source for those needs, and in turn, it will educate the public on growing and using organic ingredients."
