The Conservatory at Greystone
Led by Culinary Director & famed American chef Larry Forgione "The Conservatory" will "crop-up" at CIA Greystone featuring a $65 multi course menu both created & served by the students. Over the course of the semester these students taste & cook their way through Greystone CIA/Krug farm & kitchens. Friday & Saturday of each week this student led farm-to-table restaurant with emphasis on freshness, seasonality, local availability, & simple preparations will be featured at the Williams Center for Flavor Discovery. CIA's Farm-to-Table Cooking in America is a conservatory-style educational model for students who want to be part of a community working to create healthy, sustainable, & delicious food systems. The program will be a hotbed of activity where students can roll up their sleeves & get their hands dirty as they learn about gardening, farming practices & sourcing ingredients directly in the farms, fields, & forests of Northern California.
