On June 5th we opened up the 2011 season of the Montavilla Farmers Market with a cooking demonstration focused on having family fun in the kitchen. Three local chefs, all nationally acclaimed, showed up that 80 degree partially cloudy sky (it’s Portland!) with youngsters in tow.

Tim Daly, from the Cheese Bar, showed with his daughter Hannah and her friend.

Adam Sappington from the Country Cat showed up with the boys, Atticus and Quinn.

Kenny Hill from Trebol showed up with his daughter, but 3 month old baby girls aren’t allowed to compete.  So Helena and little Iris showed up to stand in.

I sent the kids into the market, they grabbed the fresh produce and cheeses and breads and raced back to the kitchen stations to make some food. It was great to have my original duckspoon crew there plus some new folks helping the chefs out and filming all the fun. Thanks guys!

The audience voted by submitting tokens or cash into the voting boxes and we raised $192 for the Dougy Center. Thanks everyone!

This is just a sneaker promo as I dig into these little cutie culinary videos and excavate all the little gems and focus on their actual recipes. Stay tuned!
