You know how the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) promotes sustainable food systems throughout the operation of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and offers educational programs toward this not-for-profit cause, right? Well, we are going to meetup there and start our field trip at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and then embark upon an adventure (rain or shine!) that should be filled with fun and seasonal cooking creativity! 

..Okay, so Creative Cooks-in-Training, before you RSVP "YES," be sure to UPDATE your FULL PROFILE and then check out the following tentative itinerary!

  • Special Introductory Briefing & Question/Answer Session by Director of Ferry Plaza Farmers Market (confirmed!);
  • 'SCAVENGER HUNT' ACTIVITY (updated!) - Walk, chat, shop and enjoy finding the seasonal bounty offered by the Farmer's Market (and buy your ferry ticket in advance!); 
  • FREE Cooking Lesson by Kara Lind (see details below, 11:00-11:45 a.m.);
  • Ride the ferry boat from the Ferry Building to Sausalito to eat lunch together @??? (Scheduled to Depart the SF Ferry Building at 12:00 noon, and arrive in Sausalito at 12:30 p.m.);

Kara Lind is Baking Cupcakes - A Seasonal Cooking Demo open to the public 

Kara's Cupcakes business owner Kara Lind returns to the CUESA kitchen to demonstrate creative baking!  "Her beautiful cupcakes are not only delicious, but also change with the season and the ingredients are sourced from local, sustainable businesses.  Past demos by Kara have included recipes for her Vanilla Cupcakes with Blackberry Cream Filling and Blackerry Buttercream and Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Filling and Cream Cheese Frosting.  We can't wait to find out her autumn-inspired cupcake recipe for this demo!  

All cooking demos take place in the CUESA kitchen under the North arcade of the Ferry Building and are free to the public with recipes and samples for all."

    I totally enjoyed all the sunshine we had Saturday morning (yeaa--no rain!) as well as the chance to meet new BACC Meetup Members. I will absolutely be hosting this event at this venue again! Also, who's up for doing it on the East Bay?

    @adam - I'm glad that you could make it out to our first field trip! The FREE Cupcakes that the Professional Cooking Instructor gave out tasted absolutely scrumptious btw.

    @Jo Anne - Thanks for the update, and hope to see you when you're all healthy. Kay?

    Quick Update: We are still on (rain or shine) for this Saturday's field trip.

    The Director of the Farmer's Market at Ferry Building Plaza in San Francisco will give us a formal Introduction followed by a Question-and-Answer session after we have our own Meet-and-Greet at the cafe. Weather forecast predicts a 40% chance of it being rainy on Saturday. So, I'm suggesting that you bring layered clothing options to protect from the chilly wind & rain. Meanwhile, enjoy your week!

    @Claire - You are welcome to join us at ANY point during this 'Field Trip' event! I don't know farmer's market very well. So, this will be an exciting experience for me to put together for everyone. Please note, however, that the itinerary offer us a flexible time schedule based on many possible changing factors. So, if you want to join us later, just e-mail me your phone number and I'll call you with our location so that you can come find us.
