Brunch Cooking Class at Chispas Farm
September 12, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm MDT$40.00
What the experience includes:
Our cooking classes are a one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll be cooking a meal; all focused on the farm’s produce we are visiting. We bring all the equipment to have a fully functioning kitchen on a farm!
The local farmer will give us a brief tour of the farm, highlighting the produce we’ll be using during the cooking class.We’ll have a brief demo where Registered Dietitian and owner of the Sprouting Kitchen, Fallon Bader, will teach nutrition and culinary tips. Then we get cooking! We’ll break into stations, where each group will follow a recipe that will teach them how to incorporate seasonal produce into nutritious and delicious meals. You will receive any nutrition education & recipes handouts emailed to you as a PDF to use for future reference. Lastly, we’ll sit down together to enjoy a tasty and filling meal. *See our covid-safe protocol below.

What will you learn to cook?
We’ll be making a classic Italian dish, panzanella. It makes the most of some crusty bread and peak-summer juicy tomatoes. We’ll make a vinaigrette with the tomato juice, olive oil, vinegar, shallots, and garlic that the crusty bread will soak up. We’ll saute eggplant until soft and almost creamy, and char some peppers. All of the produce will be from Chispas farm!
We’ll also fry up some farm fresh eggs, cook up some tasty beans, and will have local coffee & tea.
*The recipe can be made gluten and dairy free as needed.
