Demo: Inizio Organic Baby Care @ The Village Store

"Each bath time seemed to be a struggle with my children. When using other all natural baby care products my oldest would cry about itchy skin and my baby would get small rashes. It was then I wanted to create a new product that actually was an ALL natural organic baby care line. I contacted a manufacturer who helped me create my vision. All ingredients are grown in the US and organically. After the first bath both of my boys were happy and itch/rash free. I even use it for my own care! I look forward to growing this company and taking care of families like they are my own."

Cookin' With Kids: Burrito Bowls!

Burrito Bowls with Homemade Refried Beans & Easy Cilantro Salsa!
What kid doesn’t love burritos with all the fixin’s?  We’ll learn how to make our own refried beans, a really yummy and quick cilantro salsa, and why and how to soak our rice before cooking.  Kids will get to assemble their own burrito bowls once we’ve made all the components of the meal – choosing their favorite ingredients.  All recipes are gluten-free, egg-free and nut-free.  One recipe contains animal foods, and dairy will be optional.  

Kendy Radasky, a Nutritional Therapist and self-described foodie enjoys testing new recipes on her picky 6-year old son. Her two favorite places to spend time are the garden and the kitchen – using fresh, organic, homegrown ingredients in the meals and snacks she creates for her family. Both she and her son experience food sensitivities, so much of Kendy’s exploration with new recipes centers around gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free options. In her work as a Nutritional Therapist, Kendy guides mothers and moms-to-be, who sometimes feel depleted by the responsibilities of family and work, to deeply nourish themselves so they can reclaim their vitality and creativity, and more fully nurture those they love.

Suggested age range: 5-10 years old.  Kids up to age 12 or 13 are welcome to join us if they are not experienced cooks, this class is designed for the beginner to intermediate parent-helper.

Adults are free with paid kid’s registration. Each child will require a purchased ticket.

Demo: Host Defense Mushrooms Supplements @ The Village Store

Host Defense emerged from the fusion of skill sets from two experts: Paul Stamets and C. Dusty Yao. Paul's long time expertise in the taxonomy and cultivation of mushrooms perfectly matched C. Dusty Yao's years of making herbal extracts. The marriage - literally - of these two experts gave rise to the Host Defense products you enjoy today. Their shared passion for exploring the natural world, from thousands of hours of hiking (and laughing) through the old growth forest, and their combined ideas created the wellspring that gave birth to the  Host Defense product lines that continue today.

Join us as we continue to walk this path of exploration and healing, bridging modern science with ancient traditions. We honor and share the wisdom of nature. Host Defense is more than a product line: we are on a myco-mission to spread the power of  mushrooms supporting healthy lifestyles.

Wine Class: Sensory Overload with Jackie Elo

Wine Class: Sensory Overload with Jackie Elo

Have you ever wondered how to describe how your wine looks, smells, tastes or even sounds? Well, grab your glass and dive into this exciting and interactive class taught by Jackie Elo with J.W. Thornton!

Jackie will use a wine aroma kit to introduce you to the many different aromas that the experts refer to when describing wine. Aromas that include fruits such as lemon, peach and cherry; spices such as nutmeg and black pepper; vegetables or herbs such as green pepper and mint; and non-foods such as tobacco or smoke. Some of these come from the grapes themselves; most form during fermentation and some develop during maturation.

This class will also include a tasting of some of the world-class wines that are in J.W. Thornton's impressive portfolio to give you a chance to put what you've learned into practice, then we will end the night with a simple quiz and a chance to win a bottle of wine!

A bit about Jackie, in her own words:

"I dove deep into the wine world at the young age of 18. Being underage at the time, I read...I read a lot about wine and surrounded myself by Boise's finest connoisseurs! I worked at the Grape Escape wine bar for 9 years and that is where I fell deeply in love with the beverage scene. Wine drinkers are travelers, they are artists, and musicians, they write and eat and laugh... Overall, the wine folk are passionate people and that makes me strive to continue to learn and grow. For the past four years I have worked for J.W. Thornton Wine Imports. Our company has a long history in Idaho and we have focused on high integrity brands and importers for over 35 years. My favorite thing about my job, and wine, is it is ever changing. A bottle of wine will taste different today than it did yesterday, than it will in a month and ten years from now. Wine is alive and it makes me alive each day I get to be engulfed in its presence. Cheers!"

 Includes small bites from the Co-op Kitchen.

WINE CLASS: Are Expensive Wines Worth The Price? With Divit Cardoza

2:00 pm14:00

WINE CLASS: Are Expensive Wines Worth The Price? With Divit Cardoza

Is price really an indicator of quality? While this certainly is not a new conversation, it is indeed one worth taking another look at. As more and more inexpensive wines show up in the market, it’s not always easy to explain why one bottle costs under $10 and another close to $100. We invite you to come along on this blind tasting with Divit. The tasting is designed to help you uncover some of the reasons for this difference in pricing, from winery practices like hand-sorting to cost of land to rarity and even marketing. We think you may find that you enjoy wines from both ends of the spectrum!

"I came to wine from food. In the 1970's, I worked for a classically trained french chef where my interest in wine grew from my love of food. I continued to work as a chef for 12 years and as my wine interest grew, I tried to convince the Boise Co-op that they should sell wine. When the Co-op moved from 13th Street to Hill Road in 1984, they finally agreed and allowed me the opportunity to start the wine department in a corner of the store. The department continued to grow for over two decades and in 2007 opened as a separate location across from the main store on 8th & Fort Street. My love for food and wine has never waned and I still paint and play music too!  Yes, you could say that I am living the dream."

This class will include small bites provided by the Co-op Kitchen.
