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!

After-School Cooking Classes

Our second 6-week after-school cooking session starts in one week! Classes are Tuesdays at 3:30-5pm at Old Salt Marketplace. Each week we will taste the cuisine of a different country while practicing our kitchen skills. Students will learn different cooking techniques, knife use and kitchen safety. Each class ends with us sitting down to enjoy a meal together.

Eating the parts of a plant!

I have been stretching my Turnip roots a bit these last few months and have begun teaching in a local preschool. My bi-monthly classes include lots of tasting new foods, vocabulary, and a little bit of off-key singing. I have worked for 14 years with elementary and middle-schoolers, but this is my first foray into preschool! I love it! They are so curious, chatty, and engaging!
