Harvest Kitching Cooking Studio Announces 2010 Schedule

Leave a comment

Last year The Harvest Kitchen debuted here at Jones Family Farms. Cooking classes taught with a focus on healthy and local eating were shared with guests as they got hands-on experience, often taking the vegetables directly from the garden straight into the kitchen!

2010 promises to bring even more fun and education to your kitchen table.

You can visit the Harvest Kitchen webpage and download a PDF of the entire class schedule. But some examples of what is being offered this year are as follows:
