  • Fresh from the Farm | Fall Harvest Cooking Series

    Spinning off from our wildly successful youth culinary program, Cultivating Cooks, comes the adult version of this hands-on, back-to-basics culinary series. Why should the kids have all the delicious fun?! We’re excited to welcome Chef Andrea Christensen and Cody Castiglia as the culinary coaches and mentors for this program. Discover a fresh-from-the-farm approach to cooking for you and your family. The classes are scheduled as two, 4-week series (101 and 201) and designed to inspire and support new and seasoned cooks alike!

    In the 101 series, you’ll learn and fine tune a variety of kitchen foundations like knife skills and cooking techniques as we explore simple farm-to-table menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert recipes. In the 201 series, we’ll prepare to usher in the holidays with an exploration of seasonal and local ingredients paired with holiday recipe favorites. Each 4-week series is offered at a significant discount from individual class offerings (regular attendees save $81, members save $51). Cooking is an experience, not just a meal, and we look forward to sharing this culinary journey with you! Read more about each series below! With wheat, dairy, vegetarian options available.
