Cooking Class at The Farm in Phoenix

Do you receive produce in your CSA basket or from the farmer’s market and are puzzled on how to cook with them? Learn where this produce comes from and how to replenish your body by learning the skill of intuitively cooking.

Join The Farm at South Mountain and Melanie Albert of Experience Nutrition for a unique opportunity for a private tour of a certified organic farm followed by a hands-on demonstration of intuitively cooking a light lunch.

Learn culinary skills such as making the perfect salad dressing every time, enjoy the sense of community and learn how to cook intuitively with fresh and organic ingredients from The Farm.

Registration will close on Friday May 20 at 3 pm so that adequate supply counts can be made for class. For any questions, please email ashleyo (@) thefarmatsouthmountain.com.
