January 30th, 2016 - Kidtastic Cooking at the Ashland Food Co-Op
Did your New Year's resolutions include cooking from scratch, eating better, and prioritizing family time? Join Rogue Valley Farm to School educators in the Co-op kitchen and learn to cook family friendly recipes with seasonal produce. In class we will discuss age appropriate kitchen tasks, and all students will safely practice knife skills. We will prepare and taste Chef Salads with homemade dressings, and Vegetable Fritters with dipping sauces. Additional recipes will be included in the recipe packet that you and your children can prepare together, even on a busy weeknight.
More information and registration on the Ashland Food Co-Op website.
