Hooray! This morning, thanks to Nate Berkus, Nettelhorst has a brand spanking new teaching kitchen! Congressman Mike Quigley, State Representative Sara Feiganholtz, and Alderman Tom Tunney helped cut the ribbon on a kitchen that came to fruition by sheer goodness–HUGE thank you to Pottery Barn, Home Depot, the amazing team at Nate Berkus and Associates, and all the Nettelhorst parents and community members who helped make the dream become reality. Check out these amazing photos!
Top Chef winner Stephanie Izzard and acclaimed chef Lorin Adolph prepared breakfast for guests, parents, donors, and the eighth graders–super delicious dutch oven pancakes, fruit with mint, frittatas, and fresh orange juice. Tom Tunney even joined on as sous chef. YUM!
The Nettelhorst Community Kitchen represents everything we have been striving to create these past few years. A warm and welcoming place, where parents, students, teachers, and community members can come together and celebrate food and each others’ company. THANK YOU NATE!!
Take a virtual tour of Nettelhorst. I promise, it will knock your socks off.
