Hands on Organic Farm to Table Cooking Class

In this hands-on, vegetarian cooking class, gourmet organic chef, teacher, and cookbook author Leslie Cerier presents delicious whole foods that are quick, easy to prepare, health enhancing, and nutritious. We will prepare dishes for our lunch by mixing and matching fresh, organic, and seasonal vegetables, herbs with quick-cooking organic vegetarian proteins such as legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds, local organic grass raised eggs, local grass raised organic goat and cow cheeses.

In the process of cooking, you will discover time-saving strategies and ways to manage every part of your cooking process effectively and efficiently, from setting up your kitchen and chopping vegetables to shopping seasonally. Leslie will cover other useful tips for leftover management, enhancing flavor, substituting ingredients, and using garnishes to dress up the dining experience.

Expand your cooking repertoire with healthy fats including hemp, coconut, ghee, olive, and more.
Learn to boost Omega-3 fatty acids in delicious dishes made from dark leafy greens, pasture-raised eggs, walnuts, flax, hemp, chia, and sesame seeds.

Engage your senses with quick-cooking whole foods as a means of self-expression. Those with a fast-paced life and little time to cook will experience the bounty of delicious meals cooked in minutes. 

We will eat what we cook for our dinner.
