Turf's First Cooking Demo

On Saturday, July 11th, Turf CSA members and friends were treated to a wonderful cooking demonstration by Iris (Turf’s Chef), Lydia (Turf’s youth volunteer) and Erika (Turf’s high school intern). The cooking team prepared two fresh salads and two salad dressings using ingredients commonly included in our weekly farm share and ingredients found in one's pantry.

With culinary skill and a sense of humor, Iris filled large salad bowls with wonderful fresh ingredients such as romaine lettuce, carrots, onions, from our share, in addition to sweet oranges. A balsamic vinaigrette and a citrus dressing, perfect for salads on warm days, were also prepared by the cooking team.

Everyone truly enjoyed this cooking demonstration and the time and effort the cooking team put into making everything just right, along with answering questions from members and friends. This was Turf’s first cooking demonstration and it was a big hit and a moment for members to come together and enjoy good healthy food together.
