Fall Flavors and Festivities

Great Joy of a NC fall #1: Apple picking with Mia & Michael at an orchard in Hendersonville!
Our Summer has been jam-packed with local food events and culinary adventures with foodie friends from all around our community.  Whether we....

...celebrated the summer's bounty while serving as the Chef in Residence at the Mount Holly Farmers Market 
...or worked with The Farm at Brusharbor to cater a lovely event like the Soil and Conservation 50th Anniversary banquet
...or we taught cooking techniques to reduce stress at the Cabarrus Health Alliance
...or we cooked with children at the Concord Library or our annual Kids in the Kitchen Cooking Camp
...or we had a blast cooking with the Food Policy Council at the Cabarrus County Fair
...our summer has been a ton of fun!

We are heading into fall with a full calendar of events!  We begin with our "Cooking to Reduce Stress and Anxiety"Cooking Class at the West Cabarrus YMCA on Tuesday, September 23rd, from 6:30-8:00pm (class description located under our Corporate Wellness tab).  
     In October, Mike and I will be heading to the Tuscany region of ITALY to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary!! Our Italian adventure will include taking a Tuscan cooking class at a sustainable farm, and upon our return, I will share the flavors we celebrated there with a "Tuscan Fall" Cooking Class at CUMC
     And we cannot forget to mention how blessed we feel to once again be catering the 3rd annual Harvest Moon Festival to benefit the Piedmont Farmers Market on Friday, October 25th from 6:00-9:00pm at the Old Creamery (for ticket information/purchasing, click here).  
     Our Fall Cooking Class line up will continue with a hands-on "Ravioli Making Class" featuring Sweet Potato Ravioli with Brown Butter Sage Sauce, Pumpkin Bisque and a Pomegranate-Spinach Salad. The descriptions and dates for this class as well as "A Tuscan Fall" will be posted in the Monthly Class tab in the upcoming week-- so stay tuned for an email announcement.

Looking forward to seeing you this FALL and sharing all of the season's delicious local flavors!
