Fall harvest produce is flavor and nutrient-rich and some are strangers to us! Are you curious about some of the unfamiliar produce you see beautifully displayed at the market but haven't a clue what they are or what to do with them? These produce underdogs are undiscovered gems. In class we’ll ask, “What the heck is this?” and actually get answers! You’ll learn how to prepare and cook with them. When you taste these in Kris’s recipes you’ll want to go back for more. Could include unusual and uncommon fellows such as Chayote Squash, (also known as Buddha's Hand or a Mirliton), Burdock root, turmeric root, black garlic, and more.
Includes Arboretum admission and all ingredients.
