Zoom cooking classes with the students in their home kitchens is actually a lot of fun, and the students are learning how to cook some delicious dishes!
We have been sending home our fall crops for the students to prepare, in particular the dishes we enjoyed at our harvest feasts in previous years: potatoes for mashed potatoes, and pumpkins to make pumpkin puree for pumpkin pie.
We grow pie pumpkins to eat, but why not carve them before baking? Then you also get to enjoy some fun-looking pumpkins when they’re cooked! And style them with some pea shoots you can grow!
Also, Whidbey Island Nourishes has YouTube videos made by AmeriCorps team member Claire Bryan featuring WIN recipes and nutrition information. The school farm delivers a lot of produce to WIN, and we didn’t grow the ingredients for this granola but it is really delicious, and healthy!
