Celebration of Spring Cooking Class
with Karen Lasher
Sat., May 9th, 2pm-5pm
Come celebrate spring with a late afternoon cooking demonstration and meal. We’ll feast on the treasures of spring including peas, asparagus, nettles, sorrel, miner’s lettuce, fiddlehead ferns, and morel mushrooms. Sit and enjoy the demonstration, or lend a hand with some of the cooking tasks. It’s going to be a relaxing, delicious afternoon.
