Sunday, August 8th, 2010
1:00 PM to 5:30 PM

All too often, food is viewed as an end product, independent of the land that produced it, the hands that grew it, and those who prepared it. This cooking series provides participants with something more than just a new recipe or technique.

Conducted by farmer Michael Ableman and regional chef friends, the classes will begin in the fields, harvesting and tasting seasonal ingredients and learning about the history of various foods and the ways in which they are grown. The classes then move to our kitchen/classroom where guest chefs will demonstrate several dishes followed by a shared sit down meal.

Each class in the series will focus on the season, allowing us to explore flavour differences and preparation techniques based on the farm�s natural cycle. We�ll start with salad and cooking greens in spring, followed by tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant in early summer, and finishing with roots and squashes in the fall.
