Demos: Cooking with Local and Sustainable Food

The food we produce and consume has an enormous impact on our environment. The good news is that eating locally and sustainably grown food is fun, delicious, nutritious for you and also good for the earth!

Meet local farmers and chefs to learn how to cook seasonably, and with lower environmental impact, and why your food choices can make a big difference for your health and the planet.

The following presenters will offer sustainable cooking demonstrations so that you can learn how to create your own farm-to-table green dining experience:

    • The art of preserving food through the application of acid, or “pickling”, has been a staple in mans food system for as long as anyone can imagine. Almost anything can be “pickled”, from quick, no cook versions meant to be enjoyed on the spot, to the more traditional ones meant to extend the harvest bounty bounty through the lean times of winter. A year round burst of flavor in a jar awaits those willing to take fresh veggies, a little time, and of course lots of love to preserve the season.
