ST. LOUIS — Schnuck Markets employees recently learned about artichokes in an "Artichoke 101" class hosted by Ocean Mist Farms.
The class on March 4 was one part of a series the company offers to all employees to gain knowledge on wide variety products and commodities Schnucks offers its consumers.
In the class, Schnucks employees learned about the vegetable coming into peak during spring. About 90 minutes in length, Artichoke 101 covered everything “all about artichokes” from field to fork. The class learned how to trim an artichoke for cooking, how to remove the fuzz from a cooked artichoke and experienced a product tasting.
Limited to 60 spots, the Schnucks staff who attended the class came from all different areas of the company, including store level and corporate office positions. In addition, Mike O’Brian, Schnucks director of produce, and the entire produce team attended in support of the class.
