For many the the name alone conjures up thoughts of deprivation and images of boring salads and overcooked, tasteless vegetables. I recently came upon this fantastic article about healthy eating “seasonal, fresh, whole food” which basically sums up how I feel about eating. While I admit to being a chocolate lover, I don’t think I have ever met a roasted vegetable I didn’t like. I love the author’s adjectives for describing healthy foods such as “ farm fresh, sweet, baby”, etc, etc.
Whether you are passionate about your food or just looking for a better way to “sell” healthy eating to your family, read on!
Join us for this hands-on workshop starting at 2:30 in the garden behind Founders.
We’ll learn about the different kinds of basil and pesto and then we’ll pluck from our own Garden!
From 3:15 – 3:45 we’ll gather in the dining room and watch how pesto is made. Everyone who joins us for this pesto-fest will get a container of pesto and recipes you can use it in. And it’s all FREE! We will feature the pesto we make during this workshop at dinner – we’ll serve tortellini two ways: warm with pesto cream sauce and cold with pesto vinaigrette.
See you next Wednesday!
