Field to Fork: September Harvest Cooking Class

CSA and Farmers’ Market season is upon us! Exciting times. Have you ever been overwhelmed by the contents of your weekly farm share, by the haul of beautiful produce that you picked up at the local market, or by a bumper crop that unexpectedly flourished in your backyard garden? We’ve been there. We mean well. We want to support local farmers, eat local food, and feed our families healthy things that grow nearby. But we run out of time, patience and ideas…and sometimes, we end up composting a lot of the produce that we grow or buy. LET’S MAKE 2019 A WASTE-FREE AND GUILT-FREE GROWING SEASON TOGETHER! Join the Orange Door Kitchen team and our farmer friends for the fourth installment of our Field to Fork Cooking Class series to arm yourself with inspiring and creative ways to eat your way through the abundance of local produce as it grows out of the ground. The curriculum/menu will feature the best of what’s growing at Dancing Plover Farms on the day of the class! We’ll cook and eat three dishes together, discuss food prep and preservation techniques, and swap recipes with one another to leave you feeling full and ready to make the most out of the September harvest at home. Tickets include a welcome snack, 3 seasonal dishes, and non-alcoholic beverages. Beer, wine and spirits are available a la carte for sipping during class.
