Celebrate the bounty of summer with flavorful, mezze-style appetizers from the Republic of Georgia. We will learn to make two versions of Pkhali, a cooked vegetable pâté or salad that is a favorite starter at the Georgian table. Pkhali is made with a base of rich walnuts blended with spices and can be made to feature whatever vegetables and fresh herbs are in season. We will make Ispanakhis Pkhali, the classic spinach salad seasoned with marigold and coriander, and Jarkhlis Pkhali, a colorful beet dish flavored with fresh dill and cilantro. You will learn the foundation techniques for making Pkhali, so you can adapt the recipe to use whatever veggies you have in your garden. We will conclude the class by learning to make Nigvziani Badrijani, a delicious grilled eggplant appetizer that is rolled and stuffed with herbs and walnut paste. 

Instructor Anna Mays is an anthropologist who enjoys teaching about world culinary traditions, agricultural practices and the intersection between food, diet, culture and well-being. Anna trained at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School and has spent time in Georgia.

Do you love local food and farms? Want to get to know your farmer better -- and get a behind-the-scenes look into Vermont's vibrant working agricultural landscape? During the 2021 Vermont Open Farm Week, you can meet the farmers, plants, and animals that bring your favorite high-quality Vermont products to your plate.  

The greatest part about Open Farm Week is that every farm is unique.  Milk a cow and harvest a carrot at one farm, sit on a tractor and take in the smell of freshly cut hay at another and then head over to another for woodfired pizza night and a garden tour. Events are happening all across the state, it's a great time to get out and explore!
