The Seasonal Kitchen – April
Apr 21 2016 /6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
“The Seasonal Kitchen: Cooking with the Bounty of the Region” is a year long series of cooking classes intended to teach people how to slow down and cook delicious, nutritious, locally grown seasonal foods.
In an attempt to reconnect people with the food and traditions from the past, each month’s theme will reflect the cultural practice of referring to the cycles of the moon based on seasonal offerings.
Spring is here! And it’s time to plant the garden! Crops that you planted last fall, may already be coming up, such as garlic or spinach and maybe some volunteer something-or-other. But have you noticed that nature’s garden is already sprung to action? Buds on trees, ferns, mushrooms, leafy things and even the weeds in your garden. These plants don’t need to wait for the earth to get warm. They just naturally exist without human interaction.
The definition of weed is “a wild plant growing where it is not wanted and in competition with cultivated plants”. Did you know that 90% of the weeds in your garden are edible or medicinal? We pull them all up to make room for our ‘cultivated’ food. Why not take advantage of the abundance of food that mother earth is already providing us? Join me in cooking up something yummy using food from the ‘wild side’ of your garden.
