Seasonal Cooking from a CSA

Cooking Workshops

CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) are a great way to support local farms and develop long-term relationships with your farmers—and it ensures that you’ll have a refrigerator full of healthy, local, seasonal food. For an upfront subscription, or “share,” you receive a weekly box of farm products, including, depending on the farm, produce, meats, value-added products, or flowers. But what do you do when your fridge is filled with unfamiliar vegetables that you may be apprehensive about preparing or eating? Learn to approach seasonal cooking through the eyes of a chef with a few suggestions on how to approach new foods.

All cooking workshops will be team-taught by a culinary and health professional, offering you the best advice from each world.
