GENERAL INTEREST June Apple Kitchen: Cooking Series

Art for Adults

Megan Reynolds/ June Apple Kitchen Session I: EATING SEASONALLY: COOKING WITH WINTER PRODUCE- Traditionally, winter larders and root cellars were full of carrots, sweet potatoes, winter squash, and apples. Braids of garlic and knots of onions filled the shelves. In modern times, we’ve lost touch with seasonal eating, but the knowledge of how to eat according to the harvest cycle is our heritage. In this class, we’ll explore seasonal eating, and look at winter produce in particular. We’ll learn how to use winter squash and tubers in a variety of ways, from roasting into gratins, or tossing into salads with nuts, legumes, and cheese. Apples provide a welcome bit of crunch and sweetness, but their excellent keeping properties mean they can also be integral to our winter diets. And finally, hardy winter greens like kale, arugula, spinach, and collards can grow in hoop houses on the edges of our growing season, so we’ll learn to prepare them alone, and in soups, casseroles, and gratins. Join us this evening for cozy winter food; satisfy your body and nourish your soul with delicious, seasonal foods.

Laura Koeneman All adults join us as we rediscover together coloring and art as a way to relax, de-stress, and tap into your creativity. This is for FUN, relaxation and to reduce stress. Materials will be provided, but you may also bring your own supplies. Friday January 5th, Friday February 2nd, Friday March 2nd, Frieda April 6th.

If you’re ready to learn the secrets of flaky, delicious pie dough and banish those tough pies forever, join us in this class where we’ll look at the hows, whats, and whys of pastry making. We’ll examine the food science behind making pastry, work on techniques for adding flakiness and tenderness to your dough, and explore different ways of mixing, rolling, and shaping. We’ll discuss other potential problems with fruit pies, from soggy crusts to soupy fillings. Leave this class with a from-scratch pie to eat, and a new confidence in your own pie-making abilities.
