Cook with me on May 22 in Seattle

Fear not the artichoke

Just a heads up that I will be teaching a class on how to cook all the various (and sometimes confusing) vegetables and fruits that show up in a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) or show up at stands at farmer’s markets. Along with this, I’ll be talking about how we can all waste a lot less fresh produce. I’ll be doing this at the fabulous independent culinary bookstore The Book Larder here in Seattle.

Most of you know that I don’t teach a lot of classes these days due to book deadlines. (So far in 2012, I’ve taught just two.) So if you want to come cook with me, sign up! Although just announced, the 24 slots are filling up quickly.

In the meantime, tell me this: what fruit or vegetables confuse you the most? You know, the ones where you look at them and think, “I really don’t know what to do with that…”

    Would love to learn to cook artichokes and wats to cook brussel sprouts. Things to do with spinach and kale. Turnips and rutabagas.
    And to see you!

    Anything green or orange.
    It will be good to see you.

  4. If only I lived in Seattle, I would *love* the chance to take your class! In the meantime, confusing CSA veggies: rutabagas, parsnips, celery and celeriac (I made a potato-like with soup with a chicken stock base but other ideas would be welcome) leap to mind. Also, any ideas with broccoli or sweet potatoes that aren’t steamed or pureed respectively, would be awesome! Thank you!

    In my original post, I referred to this as being on Earth Day. It turns out that the calendar I use in my office was incorrect. And it’s from a garden center, no less! 🙂

    But really, shouldn’t every day be Earth Day???
