Risotto and Farrotto Cooking Class

Posted by: heli

We recently had another great cooking class here at the store! Kathy Dubois and Steve Boss (hosts of Great Taste on KRUUFM) taught us how to make risotto and farrotto! Farro is prepared very much in the same way as risotto with the exception of using farro in place of rice. Farro is an ancient Italian grain, great for soups, stews, and salads. It is a bit chewy in texture and has a very nice nutty/earthy flavor. We also made a couple of starters and an apple cake!

We started with some slow roasted beets drizzled with Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Next we had a fresh brussel sprout salad. It was very simple, shredded brussel sprouts, pecorino toscano cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper.

My sister Claire and her friends Sarah and Katie had a Tunisian cooking class several weeks ago. It was a smash hit, and I am reposting her blog about it here!

p.s check out our recipes section for recipes for M'hamsa Salad, Carrot Feta Salad, Gateau a l'orange, and Lablabi (my favorite chickpea stew)!

new red mittens

Today was cold and rainy. I ended up spending most of the day outside in a barn playing fiddle tunes, which suited me perfectly. I also finished a new pair of mittens (in the car on the way to the barn). Funny that it is cold enough to start thinking about keeping hands warm..

Beginning Canning

Posted by: torrey

Diane Whitney has been coming to the At Home Store for the past two years to teach free introduction to canning classes. It is that time of year again, when the farmer's market and garden are providing us with tons and tons of fruits and vegetables! And apples and pears are ripening, too. It is the perfect time to put the extra fruits and veggies into jars for the winter!
