March 2017 Turnip the Heat Cooking Updates

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a little bit less rain, snow and cold and a little more sunshine and cherry blossoms. I love March in Portland because the days start to get a bit longer and the flowers start to bloom.

Turnip is continuing to focus on customer created events. I am now booking for April, May, and June (but April is almost booked, so act fast!) If you have a class you would like to see, please email us! Does your kiddo want to learn to make a special meal for their birthday? Is your scouting group working on a healthy eating badge? Looking for a unique way to celebrate a new baby, new friend, or even your book group finishing a favorite read? Email us! turniptheheatcooking@gmail.com 

Upcoming Classes

These are limited due to the fact our calendar is filling up with private events. Are you dreaming of a class idea? We just need 6-10 friends and your dream can come true!

If you are interested in summer camp, please sign up soon. Camps are filling up.

Session One of Summer Camp 2017

Turnip the Heat Cooking will be partnering with Deena Raphael from Camp Colorwheel to offer another round of cooking and art camp.

Our hands-on, 5-day summer camp explores world cultures through art, food, games, folktales and music. Each day we will discover a new country. Colorful art and craft activities will be led by Camp Colorwheel; Joanna Sooper will help campers prepare and cook their own lunch and snacks inspired by the day’s global destination.

Camp runs 9am -3pm, Monday – Friday. 

Here is the link for registration

If your child attended last year, don’t worry, it is a big world and we will be exploring new countries!)

Happy New Year

I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their 2017! I am trying out a whole new cuisine this month – vegan! So far it has been delicious and fun, and really, really eye opening! I will hopefully have some experiences and recipes to share.

Turnip’s calendar is filling up with private events! Please email us at turniptheheatcooking@gmail.com if you are interested in scheduling an event. Children and adult birthday parties are always fun, but so are book groups, family get togethers, co-worker groups, or just friends that want to do something different for a night out! Turnip is always open to developing a class that fits your interests and culinary desires.

Preschool classes will be posted soon, as will a few kid, teen, and adult classes. As always, leave a note if you are looking for any particular class.

Happy New Year!

Joanna

It is almost the New Year!!

Turnip’s calendar is looking a bit bare, but don’t worry a whole new schedule is coming soon! 2017 will be the year of classes tailored to the needs and wants of our students! Gather up a group of friends and give us a call!

Preschool classes will be starting up again soon!

I miss teaching grown-ups, so I will be adding a few more of those in as well!

Be well and get out there and enjoy this crazy snow!
