A new Farm to Table Cooking Series from the Schaumburg Park District teaches participants new recipes. The first in a series of four classes will be from 10 a.m. to noon, Feb. 21 at Volkening Heritage Farm at Spring Valley, 201 E. Plum Grove Road. The first class will focus on potatoes.
“This exciting series will focus on one main ingredient for each class,” said Dave Brooks, manager of conservation services at Spring Valley. “The participants will prepare the dish and learn about the importance of fresh foods.”
Also featured will be simple techniques to turn the common potato into quick and easy meals. The class will make two dishes and enjoy them with fresh-baked bread and country-cured bacon.
Sign up individually, or for the series. Cost is $12 for residents and $18 for non-residents per class.
