The Chelsea Community Kitchen has designed and staffed classes to be held in connection with the Chelsea District Library‘s community read, In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan.
These cooking and healthy food classes are free, but participants should register through the Chelsea District Library by calling 734-475-8732, ext. 219 or online Library’s calendar page by clicking on the title of the event.
This cooking demonstration and tasting using seasonal produce from “the box” of a CSA share will be preceded by a tour of Capella Farm on Scio Church Road. Learn how to clean and store produce, and ways to prepare the delicious bounty of the season. The session will be hosted by Capella farm owners David and Jennifer Kangas. Sponsored by Chelsea District Library Community Reads in partnership with Chelsea Community Kitchen.
