Cooking Class: Trip to West Bengal with Sangeeta Mistry

This class will cover dishes inspired by West Bengal as well as other Indian states in the east.
Bengali cuisine is known for its subtle and fiery flavors, with unique cooking styles. With an emphasis on vegetables, lentils, rice and spices, this is a little-known part of Indian cuisine.

The use of spices for vegetable dishes is quite extensive and includes many combinations not found in other parts of India. Main examples are the onion-flavoured kalonji (nigella or black onion seeds), which is one of the spices in Panch Phoron Masala, (blend of 5 whole spices) the use of which can elevate a humble dish to a whole new level.

Come join Sangeeta as she demonstrates this unique cooking style and discover another distinctive food culture of India!

Demo: Luxe Beauty Skincare @ The Village Store

Luxe Beauty was borne from the vision of chemist Jane May Graves after her mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer.

Her Mother’s diagnosis awakened her to the importance of avoiding toxic personal care products. The skincare offerings in the market fell short of Jane’s expectations and desires.

Refusing to compromise any effectiveness when developing her formulas with the world's top chemists, Jane’s investment in research and testing proved to be invaluable.

Compelled by an immediate customer demand for high quality and pure ingredients, all formulations are plant derived, and made with high concentrations of effective ingredients.

Luxe Beauty was created for health-purist and label readers like you. We refuse to cut corners with chemicals, petrolatum, mineral oil, beeswax, silicones, phthalates, parabens, colors, dyes, propylene glycol.

We avoid filler ingredients such as alcohol, glycerin, beeswax, fruit juices, and cheap oils found in most “natural” skincare products.

Luxe Beauty products are formulated with high concentrations of effective ingredients to awaken your skin's natural glow.

Class: Cider Loves Cheese!

While pairing wine and cheese can be an overly-complicated business, and pairing beer and cheese can fill you up too quickly, cider and cheese are natural companions. Many drier styles pair beautifully with rich, buttery cheeses (think double-cream cheddar, a 2-year aged gouda or a creamy bleu), while the big apple flavors of semi-sweet ciders is gorgeous with fresh chevre or mild, nutty, soft-ripened cheeses.

$30 Member / $35 Non-Member

Join us for another lively evening with The Co-op's Cheese Wiz, Lacey McNeff and Kyle Baas from Idaho Wine Merchant. They will be featuring ciders and cheeses from all around the world.
