Happenings of the Screaming Gang

Too long absent updating the happenings of the Screaming Avocado gang.  This past November we had Alain Rosica Matamoros of Ristorante Belvedere dal 1933 travel from Frascati, Italy to share his culinary wisdom and skills with the students.  While in Stratford Alain took the lead of a Culinary Club Dinner and guided the students as they prepared an incredible menu for our guests.  Check out the photos of the dinner on the Rundles blogspot - Gastronom√≠a de Italia @ The Screaming Avocado.

While it's been a quiet year due to the educational issues in Ontario, the Screaming Avocado is moving forward with a few exciting adventures.  Presently we're putting in an aquaponics system in the green house.  The aquaponics will join the organics we're growing in conjunction with a local organic farmer Ryan who will be working with the students.

At the same time we're setting up Adopt a School program that links restaurants/chefs with local elementary schools.  The chefs visit the schools to teach simple cooking skills to elementary students and get inspired themselves.  The Screaming Avocado has put together a mobile kitchen in boxes to make the 'foodspriation' a reality.

In May the Screaming Gang will host and later travel to join our new friends from Webequie First Nation.  As with all of our other trips North we'll be sharing cooking skills and enjoying the best of culinary treats north and south have to offer.  While in Ontario our new friends will visit farms, producers and cook with our community of chefs that join and make our experiences so wonderful.

Check out our recent links in our media section.  Great things have happened - many more to come.

In food, the Screaming Avocados
