Farm Workshop: Rice Family Farms & New Potatoes

We all know that Idaho potatoes are the best potatoes (in fact, are there even any other potatoes worth eating?), but have you ever had a New Potato? This name is given to the first potatoes of the season, which are sweeter and more delicate than full-size potatoes, and have thinner skins. Join us for a visit with the fine folks from Rice Family Farms, who grow of some of the best organic potatoes at their farm in Meridian Idaho! We will be talking (and tasting) all things New Potatoes.

This class is free but please let us know if you are planning to attend!

Class: Summer Tapas & Wine with Bryan Hinschberger

Join us for another entertaining evening with Bryan Hinschberger from Bon Vivant Imports. This time around, his focus will be on Tapas with a lighter twist, modern but with traditional Spanish roots. And, of course, all dishes will be paired with the perfect wine!

"Bon Vivant Imports is a national importer of family estate wines from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Slovenia, based here in Boise, Idaho. After 10 years of working with incredible wineries overseas, we have a portfolio of wines that are made with minimal intervention, using eco-conscious practices (whether certified in something or not), have love and soul in each bottle, and showcase the native varietals of the land that they come from. As our name suggests, we are Bon Vivants: lovers of food, wine, travel… and all of it becomes so much more special when sharing with great people. So let’s have a class about how to do it right.

My background started in the kitchen where I have managed, head-chef’d, and started my own restaurant with my father. I’m not some NYC Top Chef… but I sure do like to cook. This class will be a blast, we'll talk about food and wine both separately, and together, and how to enjoy it all!" - Bryan

Cookin' with Kids: Cool Treats for Hot Summer Days!

Popsicles, smoothies and so much more!Kids are encouraged to create and sample with us.

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.

Our family has been brewing kombucha for over 20 years; a tradition passed down from a mother to a son, from that son to his wife, from that wife to her best friend. Jamie and Michelle set out to make the tastiest kombucha ever, to offer it in bulk to minimize environmental impact, and to make it affordable to everyone. From the early days of brewing in the kitchen and delivering gallon jugs door-to-door, to our newest automated brewery and now one of the largest producers of draft kombucha in the US, they have stayed true to that promise. They believe it is their calling to care for their community and spread health, love and joy to all things they touch. We hope you can feel it too.
