Julie, Executive Chef
Greetings! My name is Julie and I have been the Executive Chef at The Learning Gardens since July of 2006. I am a graduate from Indiana University-Pennsylvania Academy of Culinary Arts. I am certified in ServSafe and am a licensed Food Manager in the State of Wisconsin.
I simply adore cooking for children. They are the harshest critics with the sweetest faces. Every meal is a new experience in their young little lives and it is a privilege to watch that happen every day. Morning snack is offered to all families and usually consist of a baked good, eggs or yogurt with fresh fruit. Lunch will consist of scratch entrees with a protein and starch, along with a fruit and vegetable. Afternoon snacks, I like to focus more on fresh fruits and vegetables with the occasional homemade treat. Both snacks and lunch will always be served with milk, unless otherwise stated on classroom boards.
We like to add extra convenience to families lives whenever possible. We utilize Becker Family Farms for fresh produce at The Learning Gardens during their growing season. We are an official CSA drop off site for the Becker Family Farms!
Finally, any extra meals not served to classrooms after lunch will be packaged away into to-go containers at subsidized pricing as an amenity to parents in the staff lounge.
Please do not hesitate to ask me anything. I am in the kitchen from 7:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
I look forward to meeting your family soon!
