Seasonal Cooking in Four Courses, Adult Cooking Class Series

I have heard many people say over the years that the one hard thing about getting a CSA or growing their own garden is figuring out what to do with all those veggies.  Are you in this situation?  Maybe you are just getting to know your way around the kitchen.  Or maybe you are like me.  I love to cook and have a pretty broad selection of recipes up my sleeve, but I have been known to get in a deep, dark, boring rut wherein I have no idea what to make for yet another dinner.
Enter:  Cooking Classes!  Learn a new trick.  Get acquainted with a mystifying vegetable.  Try a well-known vegetable in a new get-up.  Find kitchen inspiration.

The Leadership Committee of Orchard Gardens Community Garden has dreamed up an exciting series of cooking classes and we think it will be a great place to jump out of your cooking rut.  The classes are taught by Rachele, a recent graduate of the Culinary Arts program of Missoula College.  She is a natural teacher and she knows her stuff.

It’s a four part series, with each class addressing a different course of a meal (like a really, really slow progressive meal).  The courses are as follows:  Soup-Salad-Entree-Dessert

I know there will be some kale in the soup, fennel in the salad, homemade pasta in the entree and berries in the dessert.  Each class will involve both demonstration and hands-on learning.  You will be introduced to the kitchen techniques of a professional, such as proper knife handling.  And you’ll get to sample.  Yum.  Take them all or pick and choose.
