Family Cooking Class: Maple Dishes, Savory + Sweet

March 8 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Annette Nielsen, Adirondack native and The Hort’s resident Manager of Food, Nutriton and Culiary Programs at the Greenhouse & Kitchen to learn how to incorporate one of nature’s sweetest offerings and the first-of-the-year north country harvest: Maple! The incredibly versatile syrup can also be found in a crystalized form. You may spotlight as part of an entree on your dinner table or hinted at in savory side dishes. Whether you want to learn how to glaze, bake, sauce, or roast, come by and see how to incorporate this favorite flavoring into your cooking!

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to class as we start right on time.

Special Note: The class is located in the greenhouse and classroom at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park. You may register online or in person.

In our Family Cooking Classes you learn how to cook with the seasons, making nutritious and delicious suppers – easy enough for a school night or for a celebratory gathering around your table. Enjoy preparing dinner with your child or a younger person in your life. Tips on how to shop seasonally and economically, ideas for weekly menu planning and presentation, and how to include younger kids in the kitchen with age-appropriate cooking tasks. Classes are for one adult and one child (children 6 and up).

The Hort’s NYDigs program is supported by The Burpee Foundation.
