Event Description

June 18, 2010 Updated Apr 19, 2010 at 9:59 AM EST

Locally grown, organic food comes together with courses on food preparation and preservation.

Whether it is food grown in your own garden, a farmstand, a locally-owned market, or a CSA share, there is an abundance of fabulous produce grown here in northeast Indiana and with these courses, you’ll learn from a local chef.

If you think eating healthy and organic means sacrificing in other areas of your budget, starve not! This course will offer shopping tips to stock your shelves and freezers with organic, free-range and whole foods. Plus, you will still have money for a night out on the town! You will also learn about nutrition and health the organic way and the many reasons for the rise of the organic movement, including the health benefits that come from cooking with locally grown and organic foods.

Margy Hooker is a caterer, cooking instructor, author of “Margy’s Favorite Recipes” and partakes in the family organic berry farm. She develops easy, family friendly recipes utilizing fresh ingredients and has a deep appreciation for locally grown organic produce, growing vegetables that really taste like vegetables and berries bursting with juicy flavor.

In each course, summer will be celebrated with recipes featuring the season’s freshest fare. Preparing fresh summer foods as well as mixing and matching ingredients for infinite seasonal variations will be presented. Margy’s farm to fork instructions will also provide time-saving tips and easy take home recipes.

If you want to learn about eating and preparing fresh foods (like raspberry applesauce or garden spaghetti sauce) or are wondering about all that zucchini, squash, tomato, corn, spinach, lettuce, basil, cucumbers, green beans, beets, potatoes, berries, peaches, and apples, then register now.
