Bread and Butter Farm

This class has been sold out!

This class is anything but cheesy.  No, really, this class is the "whey" to go!  All jokes aside, if you're looking to up your cheese game--look no further!  This class will guide participants through a recipe for making traditional mozzarella cheese.  Mozzarella is a "quick" cheese, meaning participants will get to enjoy tasty samples at the end of the evening!  Zero previous experience or knowledge required. This class will take place at Bread and Butter Farm in Shelburne and will be led by Phoebe Tucker, an educator, artist, and enjoyer of all things dairy. If you are interested in driving others to this workshop or are looking for a ride, please call or e-mail Elena Palermo at (802) 861-9757 or epalermo@citymarket.coop.

City Market, South End Store

With this interactive and hands-on tour, participants will learn how to shop for affordable, fresh, long-lasting, and nutritious foods at City Market. We will begin by exploring the Produce and Bulk departments, learning a simple method for finding the best value on fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans by paying attention to the price per pound. Then we will enter the Grocery aisles and Perishables coolers, to learn to become savvy label readers as we shop for nourishing, long-lasting foods that contain 5 ingredients or fewer. No matter what kind of diet you follow, these pennywise tools will help you stock your kitchen with a variety of healthy, local, and even organic foods and develop a better understanding of Co-op sales.

If the date and time above doesn’t work for your schedule, or if you would feel more comfortable with a one-on-one individualized tour, please contact our Outreach and Education Coordinator, Elena Palermo at epalermo@citymarket.coop or 802-861-9757.

Community Teaching Kitchen, South End Store

In Sourdough 101, you can look forward to a fun, hands-on workshop going over everything you ever wanted to know about using and maintaining a wild-yeast, naturally fermented sourdough starter. We will unravel the mysteries of wild yeast and the benefits associated with cultivating these single-celled organisms. Not only will you better understand the attributes of sourdough, you will also know how to prepare it for baking all your favorites like pizza, flatbread, and traditional rustic loaves. In this 2-hour workshop, we'll look at all the angles to feeding and maintaining a healthy sourdough starter, and use it to bake some tangy, zippy treats. You'll go home with your own starter, as well as an illustrated recipe card for future use!

Nancy VanWinkle has been culturing food for over a decade, and teaching others the wonders of fermentation from her Montessori classroom in Tennessee to community centers and kitchens throughout central Oklahoma.  She is excited to bring her love of living foods to her new Vermont community, and will be teaching "Living Foods: Fearless Fermentation from Farm, Field, and Forest" at Sterling College's School of the New American Farmstead this summer.
