Ag Center Teaching Kitchen Opens May 17
Burlington County’s Board of Chosen Freeholders will unveil a new commercial teaching kitchen in the rear of the 1935 former Winner Farm House, adjacent to the Burlington County Farmers’ Market and part of the Burlington County Agricultural Center. A ribbon cutting and festivities will take place on the opening day of the market, May 17.
Events include a cooking demonstration and talk by local celebrity chef Cyndi Stanimirov, a sous chef at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in the Moorestown Mall who made it to the top four on the reality show Hell’s Kitchen. The 4-H Cloggers and April Mae and the June Bugs will entertain market shoppers.
Cooking demonstrations will be held at the Farmers’ Market every Saturday from May 17 through October 25. The kitchen will be used year-round for classes on basic kitchen skills, nutrition, cooking and food preservation with a focus on using locally grown produce. In addition to the teaching kitchen, meeting rooms and a handicapped-accessible restroom are being added. The renovated facility can be rented for meetings and events.
