What will we be cooking?
You’re invited on a culinary adventure that pairs flavors of the American Midwest with the Pacific Northwest. Raised on Dakota land in Minnesota, Lauren Burns will teach about harvesting, preparation and cultural significance of wild rice to the Leech Lake Ojibwe people. Lauren will pair this childhood staple with a side salad inspired by the rich agricultural traditions of the Willamette Valley (Kalapuya land) in Oregon, where she now calls home. These dishes will be paired with seasonal baked acorn squash and sauteed pork or tempeh.
How does the class work?
Cooking classes take place on Zoom, with participants cooking along at the same time with Lauren! Once you sign up, you’ll get the recipe emailed to you. The recipe will also have many substitutions and we are available to help participants tailor the recipe to their availability and food preferences.
