Healing with the Autumn Harvest:
Pumpkin Love in the Global Kitchen


Saturday, October 15th, 10:00 am-2:00 pm

Most squashes find their way into our homes by virtue of their fabulous good looks. Earthy, rugged and with curves in all of the right places, many gorgeous gourds are doomed to their collective fate as dust collectors and blasé mountains of mash. However, this culinary nutrition workshop will help you fall madly in love with the autumn harvest as we transform local, organic ingredients into delicious dishes from around the world. This workshop celebrates not only the health benefits of seasonal plant-based eating but also the beauty and taste of the foods that give us life.

Lisa Marie Peloquin will delight your senses and empower your inner chef as we explore an abundance of creative ways to work with squash. Ancient healing traditions as well as contemporary holistic medicine agree that optimum fuel sources exist for the human body during the transition from Autumn to Winter. Using skins, seeds and flesh, we will play with texture, highlight color, and experience flavor!

  • Diversify your delivery system of Autumn’s nutritional powerhouses with a variety of delicious plant-based and gluten-free preparations

  • Explore the healing benefits of culinary traditions from a cross-cultural perspective, including raw and cooked recipes from Thailand, Morocco, India and even California

  • Learn how to effectively pair squash with the bounty of Fall ingredients to support harmony of body and mind during the transition from Autumn to Winter

  • Ditch the packaging: Learn how to make vegan cream sauce and gluten-free flatbreads at home
