This is such a busy time of year for everyone, that I have decided to postpone my last “Farm to Table” Cooking Class until Thursday, September 13th. I hope that is a better time for many of you, and that you will be able to join us for the last class of this summer series.
This class, in addition to harvesting vegetables from our organic garden, will be a hands-on cooking class, focusing on local and sustainable fish.
We will start with an appetizer of Smoked Wild Salmon and Trout on Garlic Toasts with Horseradish Creme Fraiche, followed by a Fish Chowder with Local Corn and Heirloom Tomatoes. The entree will be Mediterranean Sea Bass with Shallots, Cherry Tomatoes and Capers in White Wine, served with a Saffron Quinoa Stuffed Zucchini on a bed of Swiss Chard and Arugula Salad. We will finish the night off with a dessert of Poached Ginger Pears with Sesame Cookies.
I also wanted to bring to your attention the upcoming interviews I have scheduled for my radio show, iEat Green with Bhavani, on the Progressive Radio Network. This week, my guest will be Dan Morrison. Dan is the Founder and CEO of Citizen Effect, a nonprofit organization that provides citizen philanthropists with the tools and networks to execute community development projects around the world. I hope you can listen in; his organization is really exciting!
Next week, will be my first show at the new time, Thursday mornings at 10am. My guest will be Annie McShiras. Annie is the Development Director of the Responsible Endowments Coalition, an organization that works to build and unify the college and university-based responsible investment movement, challenging universities to invest their money in more socially and environmentally just ways. In addition, Annie is also a member of the SolidarityNYC collective, an organization committed to building a solidarity and cooperative economy in New York. A “Think Outside of the Box” organization! You won’t want to miss it!
