At each hour-long presentation in the series, local chefs will demonstrate how to prepare healthy, delicious international meals, from garden to table in less than 30 minutes. Participants will be taught the value and impact of using local, sustainably produced ingredients, and will be provided information on the nutritional value of the cuisine staples with details on how to grow them at home.
Free to the public, the Fresh Plates Workshop series is taking place on the first three Saturdays in March from 10-11 a.m. in the Farm + Food Lab. The Fresh Plates Workshop Series was developed in collaboration with Slow Food Orange County.
