Market Baskets Cooking Demo at the Winter Farmers Market
December 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We are excited to hold our Market Baskets cooking demonstration at the CPM Winter Farmers Market at the Myrick Park Center this coming Sunday, December 16, at noon! Claire Bowar, Viterbo Dietetic Student, will be demonstrating making an easy-to-make, delicious, nutritious and low cost “Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup” using local ingredients from the Winter Market vendors, including Tapestry Gardens, Bill & Rose’s Fine Fruits & Vegetables, Nao’s Vegetables and Flowers and microgreens that can be purchased from our Hillview booth. The cooking demo will also include a tasting of our spectacularly delicious and nutritious Microgreens!
At the end of the demonstration and tasting, we will have drawings for a slow cooker, immersion blender and cookbook “Cheap and Easy—Eat Well on $4/Day.”
BONUS! If you make a purchase from any of the vendors before the demo starts at noon, you will receive a slip from them to bring to the demo that you can use for another entry in the giveaways – that would mean up to FIVE chances to win!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Our Market Baskets program teaches food skills by providing free, hands-on cooking classes and demonstrations to the La Crosse Community. Food skills are a combination of knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to prepare safe, nutritious, and culturally representative food. The goals of the cooking classes are to teach community members how to incorporate fresh, local produce into easy-to-prepare, affordable recipes that can be prepared by all ages using a variety of kitchen tools.
