Springtime in the Kitchen

Springtime Cooking ClassAs spring emerges from winter, the lighter, warmer days call forth a change in the way we cook and eat. Energy rising from the earth manifests in all things wild and green: sprouts, asparagus, wild and leafy greens. Fermented food, paired with mineral-rich seaweed, helps stimulate a digestive tract that may have become sluggish after winter excesses. We shed long cooking for quick sautés, and include the taste of sour which is said to strengthen the liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The menu for this class will feature recipes such as:

  • Tempeh Sauerkraut
  • Polenta with Dandelions
  • Seaweed with Sprouts and Asparagus
  • Quick Radish Stir-fry
  • Lemon Gelée

*Please Note: Every individual’s needs are unique. We aim to offer a variety of health-promoting options for each individual to consider, but do not prescribe the specific dietary content of any program for anyone.
