Cooking With Food Scraps Series #2 – The No Waste Kitchen

Saturday | August 22, 2020 | 11:00 am — 1:30 pm

After her highly acclaimed “Simple Culinary Delights from Food Scraps” class last year, Stop Waste Environmental Educator Chef Helga Alessio, in the second of her 4-part cooking series, will explore the many ways that you can intercept the Food Waste cycle right in your own kitchen. At the height of summer Chef Helga will use fruit, veggies and seeds to combine into refreshing satisfying dishes.

Perfectly balanced dressings are created by blending sweet ripe fruit with some acid and salt. We will use quick pickle techniques to preserve any left-overs in surprising combinations.

At the end of the class students will enjoy the full summer meal they have prepared using the techniques taught in class.

Menu (subject to change):

  • Roasted Swiss Chard Stems with Sesame Dressing
  • Shaved Zucchini Salad with Carrot Tops
  • Vegan Goddess Dressing
  • Pulsed Pico de Gallo
  • Beet Salad with Oranges and Fennel
