  • Join us for a delicious afternoon of all-vegan cuisine! Learn how to prepare exciting grains and accompanying vegetables. You will build your own grain bowl by choosing a grain, preparing a vegetable or two, cooking some tofu, and topping it off with your own vinaigrette. Then, we will all learn how to make Lebanese stuffed cabbage leaves, full of flavor and, yes, grains! Are you ready to challenge your palette, explore all that grains have to offer, and learn some of the fun-damentals of cooking?! All ingredients are locally sourced from sustainable farmers nearby.
