Announcing a new Meetup for Cleveland Eats!
What: From Farm to Table @ Viking Cooking School
When: Tuesday, June 29, 2010 6:00 PM
Viking Cooking School
Legacy Village 24703 Cedar Road
Viking Cooking School has some fabulous cooking classes. I have attended 8 of them and have never been disappointed. The From Farm to Table class looks extremely interesting. If interested be sure to book early because the classes can sell out early!!! $79 gives you hands-on instruction, and we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor at the end over a glass or two of wine.
Modern food processing and worldwide distribution of food make most foods available year-round, but eating seasonally allows you to enjoy the ripest and freshest foods at their peak. Buying fresh, locally grown foods is good for your local economy, good for family farmers, and good for your family’s health. Farm-fresh foods are actually higher in nutrients - and taste better! Also, visiting farmers markets provides an exciting opportunity to try new foods seldom seen in grocery stores! Rare treasures such as lipstick peppers, watermelon radishes and Brandywine tomatoes await. Sign up for our new farmers market-inspired workshop, and learn how to cook fresh fabulous foods with the seasons.
SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES Cooking fresh, whole seasonal foods; learning how to make sustainable food choices; following recipes that adapt to the changing seasons; making and properly seasoning soup; making a vinaigrette; rolling out pie dough; lining a tart pan; baking tart shells “blind” (empty); making a gratin.
