Two of our amazing parents, Soren and Maria Pedersen, are doing cooking workshops with Upper Elementary and Middle School classes! This is a collaboration with Urban Harvest, and many vendors and farmers from the Eastside Farmers Market. We have asked parents to bring gift cards to grocery stores to help off set the cost of expensive ingredients, such as olive oil. If your child is participating, please consider picking up a $10-$20 gift card next time your at the store.
The most recent topic is Sweet Potatoes, 3 ways. The children prepare sweet potato pancakes, and then get to sample them, along with a sweet potato salad, and a sweet potato soup. All these recipes are very easy to make and will come home with the children participating in the class. Keep an eye out of Facebook and the E-News for pictures and more details.
