Farm to Fork: Cooking With the Seasons: Nothing tastes better than eating locally grown, farm fresh ingredients. I am very excited to offer a series of cooking demonstrations at the Stratford Ecological Center in Delaware, Ohio, featuring creative and healthy ways to prepare vegetables, grains, and other foods grown right on the Stratford farm. If you have not been to the Stratford Ecological Center, it's a gem of a place with fresh vegetables, cows, chickens, goats, even a pair of friendly llamas. A great place to spend an afternoon hiking, visiting with the animals, and learning about farm fresh ingredients that are currently in season. Class dates are the following Saturdays: June 22, September 21, and November 16 from 1:00PM to 3:00PM. Cost is only $30 per class, and spaces are limited. Contact the Stratford Ecological Center at 740-363-2548 to register.
