Wednesday, January 27, 2016 with Katie Church (Chef at Finger Lakes Cider House)

  • 6:30-8:00pm at Cornell Cooperative Extension

During the summer months we are swamped with greens; during the winter months we yearn for greens, and are swamped with…root vegetables. What to do with all these roots? The greens we have are coveted; how do we make the most of them? And what about CRUNCH? We’ll strive to excite your winter palette in these classes, stretch your root and winter green muscles, and make winter eating a joy – without taking hours of your time. 

Class structure: We’ll discuss what’s in your share, a little of what’s going on behind the scenes in your farmers lives and work (like how do they do it?), and the best ways for storing them. We’ll cook a meal together, and eat it. Kids over 10 welcome.

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 with Katie Church (Chef at Finger Lakes Cider House)

  • 6:30-8:00pm at Cornell Cooperative Extension

This week we'll again address those root vegetables that are piling up in your house - we will be sure to focus on parsnips, turnips, and carrots. We'll also include squash, beets and cabbage, among others. We'll do some baking, make some onion jam, a quick and versatile broth, and of course, our favorite sauces (including No-Mato ;-), and dressings, dips/spreads.   

Class structure: We'll talk at the beginning about farming, vegetable storage, both on your end and on the farmers! - and then we'll divide into cooking groups, cook a meal, and eat it together.
