Root vegetable extravaganza! It's (mostly) what's local in the winter, but how many pans of maple-roasted root veggies can one person eat? Join us for a creative cook-along class in which we will make a warmly spiced Indian-style one-pot meal with turnips, butternut squash and kale (which happens to be vegan). We'll also talk through more than half-dozen other ways to use root vegetables including parsnip cake, honey-soy glazed turnips, quick pickled carrots and turnips, rutabaga and ham gratin, and more!

This class is designed as a cook-along livestream class. The recipe and a list of ingredients & equipment will be emailed out approximately a week in advance, and you can cook along with the instructor if you wish or just watch and learn! The livestream will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform and joining instructions will be sent in an email; we recommend installing the platform ahead of time and joining the live event a few minutes early.
