Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation

A food philosophy that makes sense.

Stephanie Alexander has a vision that pleasurable food education is accessible to every Australian school with a primary curriculum.

The not-for-profit Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation takes a revolutionary approach to food education focusing on pleasure, flavour and fun. The recipe for effective food education:

  • Encourage fun, flavour and texture through experiences that engage all the senses.
  • Model good food choices without resorting to pyramids or labels of ‘healthy’ or ‘unhealthy’.
  • Reinforce techniques repeatedly, providing the confidence to plant seeds or cook simple dishes at home.
  • Plan menus around the fresh, seasonal produce growing in the garden.
  • Use ingredients at their peak – seasonal herbs, crisp veggies, fresh fruits.
  • Expand culinary horizons, presenting cultural differences as fascinating rather than strange.
  • Expand vocabularies for describing foods, flavours, textures, plants and processes.
  • Food should be delicious and the cooking of fresh fruit and vegetables should be timed with great care.
  • Come together at the end of the cooking to share our meal around the table.
