Chef Monique Hooker expounds on the virtues of a prepared ratatouille mix that can be prepared in season and used multiple ways during the school year.

LANESBORO — Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center recently hosted an event to help food service staff at the several environmental learning centers in Minnesota to prepare more nutritious, earth-friendly foods for students and patrons. Officially a gathering of the EarthSense Alliance, the mission was to learn about "Cooking with the Seasons."

This is a venture into farm-to-school cooking with celebrity Chef Monique Hooker. Eagle Bluff is leading the charge to improve cafeteria food service for students. We all are working to source more local food stuffs and to make more of our menu from scratch to provide our participants with healthier meals.

The EarthSense Alliance comprises six residential environmental learning centers in Minnesota — Audubon Center of the North Woods, Sandstone; Deep Portage, Walker; Eagle Bluff, Lanesboro; Laurentian, Britt; Long Lake, McGregor; and Wolf Ridge, Finland.
