New Stone Soup Cooking Class Starts in June

Many of us are familiar with the folk story of stone soup: a stranger arrives in a new town and says, “I will make the most delicious soup out of water and a single stone, and it will be enough to feed the whole town.” Each towns-person ends up contributing one ingredient to the pot, and by the time the soup is cooked, the community has come together to create a meal to feed everyone.

This summer, join your neighbors as we bring that sense of community and adventure into the kitchen with a new Stone Soup cooking class series! This monthly hands-on class will focus on seasonal and improvisational cooking – attendees will each bring an ingredient that we’ll transform into a delicious meal!

You’ll learn about what’s in season, key ingredients and adaptable recipes (lots more than just soup!), and discuss ideas for improvisational cooking (aka “how can I make a meal from these ingredients?”). At the end of class, we’ll share the meal we’ve created at our community table.

Classes are hands-on, vegetarian (eggs and dairy in some dishes, but no meat), and all ages are welcome. BYOB encouraged!

Sign up for a class:

Some ideas of what you can bring are:

  • a herbs or vegetables from your garden
  • an excess of produce from your CSA box
  • a mystery vegetable from the farmers market that you’d like to learn how to cook

Some things not to bring:

  • Expired produce or canned goods
  • Home-canned preserves (we love to make them, but can’t use them in class)
