SOLD OUT! Breakfast & Balloons Cooking Class at the Rio Grande Community Farm!
October 9 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm MDT$49.00
What the experience includes:
It’s that time of the year, the annual Balloon Fiesta!!! Rather than waking up at 4am to make it into Balloon Fiesta park, head on over to our morning cooking class at 7:30 am! We’ll be at the Rio Grande Community Farm, which is in the North Valley along the river. This is a great space to see balloons floating overhead (it’s not guaranteed, but there is a pretty good chance we’ll see balloons)!
- We’ll have hot local coffee & tea ready to warm you up when you arrive!
- Then you’ll get to experience a signature Sprouting Kitchen cooking class.
What’s on the menu?
- Creamy blue corn polenta (also known as chaquehue)
- Garlicky sautéed seasonal veggies
- Green chile herbed salsa verde sauce
- Fried local eggs
- Slow-cooked local pinto beans
About the Rio Grande Community Farm:
The Rio Grande Community Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit that grows fresh and organic produce, manages a 2-acre community garden with education programming, and advocates sustainable agriculture and numerous initiatives to strengthen Albuquerque’s bonds to its rich agricultural history and quality, healthy, local food. It is located on the beautiful Los Poblanos Fields Open Space in the North Valley of Albuquerque.
Who is this class for?
This class is for someone who wants a unique cooking experience. You’ll learn about local farms, sustainability, nutrition, and cooking techniques. Our recipes focus on teaching you how to utilize and cook with seasonal produce, but it doesn’t matter if you are a vegetarian, vegan, or carnivore – we all need to eat more plants!
Whether you’re a beginner or more seasoned cook, everyone can learn from our classes. We always have extra staff who can help with additional instruction if needed.
If you have dietary restrictions, please let us know before class, as we can usually accommodate them!
Our covid-safe & food-safety protocol:
We are following the CDC’s recommendation: if you are vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask, but if you are not vaccinated, then we recommend you please wear a mask. Our classes are outdoors, which provides lots of great air ventilation. If the host farm has a specific safety protocol in place, we will be following their protocol.
We will have gloves and masks available at all classes. We will also be sanitizing all of our cooking surfaces and equipment. We will be minimizing the amount cooking equipment is shared between participants. If participants are not feeling well and need to cancel, see our policy below.
