Local for Lunch: Welcoming Spring

Saturday, April 8th, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Fresh greens, sprouts, asparagus, radishes and eggs are the stars of spring — perhaps the most anticipated eating season of the year. Kick off your April with a lunch of salads, scratch-made dressings and farm fresh eggs prepared by home cook and food writer Christina Nifong. We’ll talk about what’s growing now and what to look forward to in local gardens and farmers markets as the season unfolds. Plan to take home recipes and resources to use throughout the season.


DIY Beer Brewing
