"Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower: How to Cook with Vegetables and Other Plants”
Join BARN's Kitchen Arts volunteers as we review some of our favorite cookbooks. We team up, work through a few recipes, and spend time tasting something new. Buy your book, share your thoughts or just come ready to cook. Join us on the second Sundays of each month to share and cook with BARN's Kitchen Arts community.
In January we explore "Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower: How to Cook with Vegetables and Other Plants” by Gill Meller. British chef, writer and instructor Meller takes us on a seasonal journey of plant-based foods in his most recent book. He believes shifting to plant-based meals can be liberating and the recipes in this book are not only inviting and creative, but also simple. The 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
