Kitchen Co-op: a series of communal cooking gatherings
“Many hands makes light work” – John Heywood
The Kitchen Co-op is a series of gatherings designed to make weekly meal preparation a shared endeavor. Many of us often cook in isolation, for our own families, and as part of a private ritual. However, historically cooking has been central to the life of a community. The revival of communal bread ovens, canning parties, and food swaps are evidence of the desire to reclaim the communal nature of food.
We invite you to participate in the Kitchen Co-op. Gatherings will focus on making collaborative seasonal meals, introducing traditional culinary practices, and supporting community interaction. Meal preparation will be lead by chef Nicole Lo Bue. Participants are expected to bring seasonal organic ingredients from their gardens or the store to contribute. During each session, we will create two meals for particpants to take home.
Childcare will be available for a limited number of children ages 2 and up for an additional fee. Christina Derocher, a Waldorf trained teacher and experienced nanny, will be on hand to lead children in parallell activities. An outing to a nearby park and a snack will be included.
