Spring Market Recipes: Flexible, Economical, Seasonal

Kitchen Commons

Making multiple dishes with the overlapping ingredients is a good strategy for ensuring nothing goes to waste and for furthering our food dollars. Here, we use veggies to create an energizing breakfast, ready on-the-go, that you can make while dinner is cooking, and desert too! These recipes are meant to be flexible so that you can include the vegetables, pasta or cheese you have on hand and help reduce your food waste.

Late summer is the season of canning, especially in the Pacific Northwest! Wild blackberry bushes overflow with juicy fruit, and the pick-your-own farms are a great place to social distance and gather delicious blueberries, marionberries, cherries, etc.

How to host your own virtual cooking class!

How to host your own virtual cooking class!

Adrienne Hohensee

All across the food community, many folks who used to cook for people have found themselves with fewer customers and more time on their hands.

Many chefs at restaurants are turning to these virtual classes for small fees in order to keep afloat, but anyone can host a class, even casually amongst a group of friends! (Ex: if you miss your normal Sunday brunch crew, make food together over Zoom one Sunday morning - have everyone ‘teach’ one part of the meal!) Sharing food is a powerful connecting tool and virtual cooking classes offer the opportunity for people to come together and cook as a community.
