The Seasonal Kitchen – January
Jan 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.
WOLF MOON – ONE POT MEAL
January’s choices of fresh and local foods are slim and nearly none, so our “one pot meal” will rely on food sources that are locally grown and produced, but preserved during their season to be used while the Earth holds the potential for the next season. We’ll be using garbanzo beans, barley and winter squash as the focus of this nourishing and hearty “soup.”
Instructor: Teena Holley’s cooking career began before she was tall enough to reach the stove. Originally trained as an RN, she eventually shifted her focus to the study of Ayurveda which convinced her that locally grown, clean and seasonal whole foods are key to vitality and wellness. She has been a cook for restaurants, and for myriad retreats and events, including the INWFN’s Farm to Table Dinner and our monthly Chew on This! programs. When she isn’t in the kitchen, Teena works as a massage therapist.
