Local Professional Chefs Create recipes tackling some of the more obscure produce you might find in your CSA.
No matter your devotion to eating local and supporting Rhode Island's smaller farmers, if you don't know how to use a veggie it is doomed for the compost. To help with this all too common problem, we have asked some local chefs to create recipes that tackle your CSA mysteries. Our CSA Sleuths are fabulous personal chefs and Urban Greens Members:

Brown University's Swearer Center for Public Service, the TRI-Lab at Brown, and the Rhode Island Food Policy Council invite you to a public conversation with community economist and co-op enthusiast Michael Shumanat on Sunday September 8th at Brown University from 4 to 6 p.m. Michael will discuss the ways a robust local food system can help fuel economic development in Rhode Island.
Join us Saturday, September 21st from 2-4 pm for a Sauerkraut Fermentation Workshop with Peter Glantz and Ceramic Crock Studio Tour with Meredith Stern. Learn to make crunchy, tangy sauerkraut similar to what you'd get in Eastern Europe, a New York Deli, or Bubbies Brand--and take home your fresh, homemade pint at the end of the day. The workshop also includes a fermentation kit and handmade ceramic weight made by Meredith Stern.
There is a $10.00 materials fee for this workshop.
Registration is now open. This event is limited to 15 participants, so be sure to reserve your space! Click here to sign-up now.Read More
