Kootenay Teen Chef Club Now Accepting Applications for the 2021 Season- Free, Fun + Virtual!

In partnership with the Trail & District Chamber of Commerce and Trail’s IncrEDIBLE Farmers Market, the Kootenay Teen Chef Club will bring an exciting, interactive and virtual culinary experience to those 13-18 who live in Trail, Montrose, Areas A+B, Rossland and Warfield from June - October of 2021.


How it works:


Applications are now open here: https://trailfarmersmarket.com/kootenay-teen-chef/apply/


Accepted Club Members will be notified no later June 18, 2021 and will receive a Welcome Package of culinary items from generous local sponsors, as well as an electronic guidance package. All levels of skill are welcome to join. Please note that spaces are extremely limited for our first year of the KTCC. 


Each month beginning in June there will be a culinary theme.  Club members will shop at the Trail Farmers Market each month with their complimentary $25 worth of vouchers, then prepare a dish on theme and upload to the social media channel of their choice- Facebook, Instagram or Tik Tok- to receive their credit iron-on badge for the month. Parent / Guardian supervised social media accounts are strongly recommended. 


There is a Facebook “inspo” and support group exclusively for club members and their supervising parents/guardians packed with great cooking tips and on-theme recipe ideas where participants can also ask questions and troubleshoot with fellow members and experts. 


Some come and join the fun, learn about great local food being grown and produced in the West Kootenays and cook tasty meals at home with a group of online friends cheering you on every step of the way.
