Go RVA! There are some really fun foodie events coming up this month.
This Saturday, Mise en Place will have a Farm to Table market tour and cooking class at The Farmers Market @ St. Stephen's. The class meets at 8:30 to do a tour of the market, then start cooking by 9:30 or 10 and eat around 11:30-noon. This will be the fourth F2T class that they have taught this season. Chef Jannequin Bennet says these classes are always very lively- sounds fun, oui? The class can usually finish about 5 different recipes, depending on where people's interest lies, though one class completed 7 different dishes! You can learn more and register for this class on their website.
And, if you are getting ready for the RFC's Yes We CAN! preserved food swap, you won't want to miss Tony Arrington's lunchtime lecture at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden on 'Preserving the Harvest', September 28 from 11:30- 1:30. Learn about pressure canning, proper freezing techniques and how to preserve herbs for the 'off seasons'. I do get to help with this class, and am pretty psyched to learn what Tony knows. You can learn more and register here. See y'all there!
