December 1st – December 24th
This Giving Tuesday The White Mountain Cider Company is donating 10% of our gift certificate sales to The Kennett High School Culinary Program. The program is run by Alison Bickford, a former team member at the Cider Co., who has been instrumental in helping developing many recipes in the market and still helps out with baking, cooking, and catering whenever she can. She is responsible for the recipe development of our popular raspberry white chocolate scones! Traditionally the Culinary Program at Kennett High School has to self fund the assistant “sous chef” position for the program. The position is vital, imagine trying to oversee 16 high school students with knives, flames, questions and hands-on demos with out some help! (For you Conway residents, please consider encouraging the board to include this position!) This year the ability to self-fund has been hampered not only by Covid-19 closing the café and catering opportunities, but will be hampered long term by the food service company contract (lunch room) basically requiring the café to be shut down..a non-compete so to speak.
So, to do our part in a hospitality driven community for kids who have an interest in this field of work, we are donating 10% of all our Gift Card sales from December 1st– December 24th.
Culinary Arts is one of the fastest growing professions in the country. The culinary program will strive to provide students with professional production experience as they work and manage the on-site Mineral Spring Café. Our licensed kitchen, planned by restaurant owners and chefs from the Mount Washington Valley, meets industry standards. Safety and sanitation procedures, lab management and professional working attitudes are included in the curriculum.
