Autumn Memorable Meals

In the Fall we return to our mid-afternoon three-hour format and have more time to do “hands-on” cooking and practice party-worthy meals.

What Will I Learn?

  • Hands on veggie harvest & preparation
  • Knife handling & cutting methods
  • Tips on finding ingredients in season & suggestions for preserving the farm’s bounty
  • How to maximize flavor in your cooking & inspiration to encourage joyful cooking
  • Knowledgeable cultural & nutrition discussion about we’re eating

What to Expect:

  • Class size is limited to 12 people
  • You will be working together with other students in a friendly, hands-on environment led by our professional farm educators
  • You will be standing for most of the class. Please wear comfortable, closed toe shoes, minimal jewelry, & have long hair tied back.
  • You will receive a kitchen apron, which is yours to keep, & a copy of all recipes at the end of class

Our limited number of cooking classes is snuggled in between our busy farm harvest seasons. Each class is unique and especially developed for its scheduled day so we can highlight the regional, farm food ingredients of the season. Our classes are taught using a combination of cooking demonstration by our expert chef, Sherry Swanson, and hands-on preparation by the class participants. Jean Jones, Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist, discusses the cultural and nutritional aspects of the foods we are studying. Farm educator, Emily Freund, organizes the class presentations and offers sound cooking advice while we cook together. We conclude each class by dining at our ample farm table, enjoying a specially selected glass of Jones wine. Students leave with copies of our simple, flavorful recipes and other relevant information.
