giulia2Eating in Season at the Farmers Market with Chef Giulia

Tuesday, July 12 at 6:30pm

Are you interested in trying new fruits and vegetables but not sure how to prepare the unfamiliar items found at our local farmers markets? Do you occasionally buy larger quantities than you can eat in a few days? This program will provide ideas for preparing locally-available seasonal produce for immediate meals, as well as simple ways to conserve the bounty for eating later.

Helpful resources will be provided and samples of health-providing foods will be available for tasting. No food preparation will be done during the program.

Chef Giulia is a Vegetarian/Vegan Personal Chef, Cooking Instructor, and Food Coach based in Stow. Her focus is on inspiring others to prepare meals in their own kitchens in order to eat more healthfully.

This program is for adults. Registration is underway. Spaces are limited; please visit or contact the Information Desk to register.
