About the event
Most of us aren't very familiar with winter vegetables like celeriac or radicchio. Whether you've never seen a vegetable in your life or are just looking for new ways to cook with them at home, join me for a cup of tea and cooking demonstrations! Lacinato kale has rounded rumples that are the best at capturing sauces and dressings, and kale in general is the most tender in the winter when the freezing temperatures bring out its sugars, celebrate this hardy green while its in its prime!
This week, we get to know Lacinato kale, how to cook with it, and learn two super simple recipes that could be your new go-to favorites! For this class I’ll be making a Crispy Garbanzo & Lacinato Salad and a Garlic Mushroom Lacinato Breakfast Scramble. You’ll get to try both, go home with beautiful recipe cards, and all the local organic veggies you'll need to make both recipes!
This farm to table cooking class will be held in the cute and cozy Gathering Together Farmstand. Located on farm, the Farmstand & Restaurant is a quaint space just under a mile off Philomath Blvd.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Hi there! My name is Laura Bennett. I've been farming, cooking, and educating about both for the last ten years. I didn't grow up eating many veggies, and I really love helping to break down the intimidation of cooking with fresh foods. The goal isn't to be a vegetarian, always buy organic, or even to cut packaged foods out of you life. It's just about learning how to incorporate a little more veggies into your cooking in a way that both super delicious and feasible amidst a busy life. Hope you come can come out! Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
This cooking class costs $30 per person, including the cost of all the local veggies that you get to take home. For anyone experiencing food insecurity, I do offer 5 discounted tickets per class at $15 per person, no questions asked, first come first serve.
