Class: A Guide to Collagen with Cathy Smith

Have you heard the news? Collagen is the latest and greatest way to care for your body inside and out!

Join us for this informative hour with Cathy Smith from the Boise Co-op and learn about collagen which is the most abundant protein in our bodies, especially type 1 collagen. It’s found in our muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells. When it comes to our joints and tendons, in simplest terms, it’s the “glue” that helps hold the body together. A few of the other benefits include gut health, immune support and hair growth. There are 16 types found in the human body, we will focus on types 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10. 
Cathy will also share with you some simple and tasty ways to incorporate collagen into your life everyday! 

This workshop is complimentary but please let us know if you are planning to attend.

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.

When most people think Malbec, they think Argentina. While that country has taken the variety and run with it, creating wildly popular wines, the grape originated in France. There it results in a wine rather different in style from most Argentine Malbecs. And beyond that, the variety is making inroads in the Northwest including our own Snake River AVA. See what’s new in the world of Malbec.

Cooking Class: Potstickers with Noi

Potstickers are popular dumplings present on many Chinese menus all across America. They are typically stuffed with a protein and vegetables,  wrapped in dough and thinly rolled out.  The dumplings are then sealed by carefully pressing and pleating the dough.

 Potstickers with Noi will show you the most popular way of cooking a potsticker. Known as the “fry-steam-fry” method, the dumplings are first lightly browned in oil, water is added to the pan, which is then covered to steam and cook the dumpling filling. Then the pan is uncovered to allow the water cook off and the dumplings pan fry until crispy on the outside! Potstickers with Noi will be a fun, hands-on class. Noi will teach you how to stuff and wrap two different types, chicken with vegetable and a vegan tofu dumpling. You will also learn how make a perfect sweet and tangy soy dipping sauce to compliment the potstickers.

Noi Thannao immigrated to the United States at the age of four. Born in a refugee camp in Thailand, his parents who are of Lao descent, raised him to love food from all cultures. “I was exposed to so many different cuisines when I grew up, I was fascinated with all of the unique flavors and wanted to create them to share with my friends and family”.

This class will include one glass of wine per person. You are welcome to purchase beverages of your choice and bring to the class.

Wine Class: Celebrate with Champagne @ The Village

When it comes to celebrations, nothing makes the occasion as special as the real deal—Champagne—perhaps the world’s most famous wine. 

Join Divit Cardoza as he shares his deep knowledge of this historic region. Champagne, the wine, is named after the region where it is grown, fermented and bottled: Champagne, France. Nestled in the country’s northeastern corner, near Paris, the only labels that are legally allowed to bare the name “Champagne” are bottled within 100 miles of this region (according to European Law). In addition to location, Champagne also receives its distinguished name because of the grapes used to produce it. Grown in a mild climate with chalky and mineral rich soil, the flavor of these grapes is truly unique. 

This tasting will include appetizers and desserts from the Co-op Kitchen.

This is one of our most popular tastings and sells out quickly, make your reservations early!

Beer Tasting: Cider Sisters @ The North End Tasting Counter

We are cider purists, always seeking the Lost Carboy, that carrier of dreams and good taste.  The only flavors you will taste in this exceptionally dry, unfiltered, traditional cider are those created by the interaction of the apples and the finest yeast as they ferment and age over time. We always use fresh apple juice so you can concentrate on something else.

Demo: RXBAR Protein Bars @ The North End Store

We don’t claim to be a prescription for anything. But we do promise to give you clean food you can count on. We’re upfront and honest about everything we do, from the inside out.

Yes, we make protein bars. But really, we’re in the egg business, and the date business, and the nut business. You get the idea. We keep things simple so the core ingredients are everything. We take a hands-on approach to ensure each and every product we put our name on lives up to our high standards for taste, quality, and nutrition.

Egg whites for protein. Dates to bind. Nuts for texture. Our core ingredients are all there for a reason. No free rides. No fillers. No B.S. Just good, clean food with 100% natural flavors. What you see is what you eat. Learn why we’re made from what we’re made from.

Kids are encouraged to create and sample with us.  Adults are free with paid kid’s registration.  Each child will require a purchased ticket.
