Wellness in the Schools Gala 2017

All year long we enjoy working with Wellness in the Schools (WITS) and visiting our partner school PS20 for Cafe Days and Cooking Labs. However, the WITS Gala is always a highlight of the year. It’s a special evening when all of the restaurant partners and various sponsors gather to put out delicious spring dishes to celebrate the work that has been accomplished. It also aims to increase funding to expand WITS programming, which is vital for giving kids not only healthier school lunch options but also valuable nutrition knowledge and basic cooking skills with long lasting impact.

This year we wanted to bring a vegetarian dish that spoke of the season with foraged flavors and floral accents. We made nettle & ramp dumplings with koji sauce, radishes, baby fennel, wild mustard flowers.
The dish and the evening were a success with funds raised to continue to expand Wellness in the Schools!
