Adult and Teen tickets available!!
The summers in Illinois can be brutal. It’s hot and humid, and most of us hate to be outside. The crops however, love the hot weather and burst into overdrive! We have some of the most flavorful, bright, and beautiful crops here in the Midwest. Illinois grows a TON of corn, but we also place 6th in states that grow the most overall produce. We thought we’d celebrate our surplus of the amazing food growing right in our back yard with a big summer feast. We’ll make dishes such as: Grilled Green Tomatoes with Burrata Cheese, Summer Squash Baba Ghanoush, Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pizza with Spicy Sausage, Watermelon Salad with Mint and Lime, Creamy Corn Chowder, Blackened Salmon with Quinoa Tabbouleh, Chilled Peach Soup with Goat Cheese, Chipotle BLTs with Avocado Mayo, Blueberry Cornbread Crisp for dessert! We’ll even make a round of Mojitos to wash everything down. Illinois may be in the depths of winter right now, but summer is coming and with it, the most delicious produce in the country! This class will give you all the recipes you need to be eating good all summer long!
Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders. Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. You can bring adult beverages if you’d like. We will provide knives if you do not have them. We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.
