Come learn, prep, and relish family friendly summer dishes with fellow home cooks, having fun in the kitchen while checking off that to-do list. You won't have to sweat cooking the rest of your week!
In this 3 hour class, we'll explore three summer vegetables and one summer fruit that make great family side dishes or main courses. Hollie will show you all of her tips and kitchen short-cuts to make mouth watering veggie dishes the whole family will love. From okra to corn and tomatoes, summer squash to sweet berries, we'll explore each at least two different ways to keep your family's dinner menu exciting! As you're having fun with friends, you'll also be prepping to get a head start on your weekday menu, so when you're back home there's no need to sweat cooking when it's beautiful outside. We'll top off our veggie adventure with hearty bites, Hollie's favorite veggie sides and a glass of something delicious.
Participants will enjoy a meal with wine, take home their prepped menu items and a recipe booklet and an invitation to join Hollie's Joyful 12 Online Kitchen Learning Lab for the Summer Season.
