Youth Cooking Workshops – October 15th

October 5, 2017 |  by  |  Chef Demos, News

This Sunday, October 15th, we’re excited for cooking workshops for kids and teens, which are free and open to the public. In each workshop, youth will learn to cook one dish using fresh market produce and then get to eat their creations. The workshops are designed and taught by kids-cookery expert Beth Gates of Cook First PDX. She’ll be teaching participants a few basic cooking skills during the course of one recipe, growing their confidence and inspiring them to explore the fun and adventure of making their own meals.

Each workshop is about 30-45 minutes. One seasonal recipe using market ingredients will be taught at each session, and all are vegetarian and gluten-free.

— 11 am: Carrot Apple Salad with Yogurt Dressing. This workshop is aimed at 5- to 10-year-olds to make with an adult, but all youth up to 18 may join in.

The afternoon workshops are tailored for ages 11-18 (but children as young as 8 can attend if an adult accompanies them):
— 12 pm: Arugula Salad with Sautéed Pears and Mustard Dressing.
— 1 pm: Kale and Butternut Squash Sauté.

To attend any of these FREE workshops, just come to the market this Sunday, October 15th and sign up onsite.
