Much like the end of summer and the changes that come with fall, there is a flurry of growth and renewal happening at Tree House Kitchen, and we couldn’t be more excited. Get ready to change the way you think about food!
At Tree House Kitchen, through our cooking classes, events and partnerships, we have always nurtured and celebrated the connection between food, good health, community, family, and our sense of peace and well-being. Our greater purpose as chefs and teachers is clearer than ever: to take a fresh look at the important role food plays in our lives, and share our new work with you.
The evolution of Tree House Kitchen: Our beautiful and peaceful location atop the Niagara Escarpment in Greensville has been reinvented as a bustling hub of food-forward research and resource development. We will be creating and publishing valuable resources, developing recipes in our test kitchen, and implementing new teaching mediums. Our renewed vision will allow us to meet the needs of our ever-growing client base and provide opportunities to share our work broadly.
Some of what you will see in 2017/18:
The development of new video teaching resources | Technology is our friend! Cook with Tree House Kitchen chefs from the comfort of your own home kitchen, anywhere and in any weather, in our fun and informative YouTube videos, coming up in 2017. Have a specific cooking question? You can even contact us to “Ask A Chef” and we may use your question on camera!
The Tree House Kitchen Potager | The wild flower and prairie meadow garden at Tree House Kitchen is already a certified Pollinator Paradise. Watch as we transform our no-mow grass into a tapestry of sustainably-grown heirloom vegetables, fruits, edible flowers, and herbs. Our eating gardens will include a dedicated kids space, an area for experimental varieties and our thoughts are moving forward toward an Accessibility Garden where everyone can engage their senses.
Share share share! | All this goodness is begging to be shared, so in addition to our free recipe package and newsletter (what, you haven’t signed up yet?) in 2017 you’ll be able to engage with us via Facebook and Twitter and see all the culinary action from the test kitchen come to life in our new Instagram feed.
You can also check in on Nancy Henley’s food literacy side projects, including:
Partnership with the Institute for Hormonal Health and integrative wellness cooking coaching | Learn how to nourish yourself as part of your holistically tailored program for hormonal balance and healthy weight management at Institute for Hormonal Health in Oakville. Watch for links to Nancy’s guest posts for the IHH and articles about eating thoughtfully for hormonal balance.
Hamilton Public Health food literacy advisory | Chef Nancy Henley is on the city’s Food Advisory Committee, which helps improve food literacy, food security, and food-delivery systems. We’ll update you on the latest news in the development of the new Hamilton Food Strategy, and the positive changes this will bring to the community!
And thinking ahead to 2017…
