I'm spending my St. Patrick's day in the kitchen with Local Roots, a CSA started by my friend WenJay. Her cooking clubs are small, intimate classes to show customers how you can use everything from your farm share. We'll be at Brooklyn Foodworks roasting up a lot of winter veggies, sipping on wine and learning basic knife skills to help us through the night.
Learn to cook new dishes with Local Roots NYC inspired by the season's harvest in a fun and casual setting. Led by Chef De la Vega, creator of Randwiches and editor at large of Put an Egg On It, you'll prepare dishes in groups with a glass of wine in a unique setting: a food incubator kitchen that is home to many of NYC's small-batch food producers. Learn how to take the same set of ingredients and turn them into different dishes that complement each other to create a farm to table dinner which you will enjoy together as a group at the end of the evening. Participants will also learn basic knife skills and will walk away with recipe cards for the night's dishes, an opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals, and an immersive culinary experience.
The menu will be inspired by Chef De la Vega's new book and Local Roots NYC seasonality and available items from their producers.
Limited spots are available. Buy tickets here!
