We invite BARN Membership to join us in sharing and cooking with the BARN Kitchen Arts Community. Feel free to email your recipe suggestion to Marcela Sandoval.

March Book Club:

Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower: “How to cook with vegetables and other plants,” by Gill Meller. British chef, writer, and instructor Gill Meller take us on a seasonal journey of plant-based foods in his most recent book.  He believes that shifting to a plant-based meal can be liberating and the recipes in this book are not only inviting and creative but also simplistic. This book has so many beautiful photos and recipes, we could spend the whole year on a culinary journey with this book alone. 

    In this class, we will attempt and taste the following dishes:

    • Celeriac & Sage Ravioli

    • Roasted Sprouts with Green Herb Sauce

    • Cauliflower Soup with Cumin & Orange

    • Kale with Rosemary, Capers & Creme
