The Boalsburg Farmers Market is sponsoring a Vegetable Festable on Tuesday, July 15th at the Boalsburg Farmers Market.
The event is designed to demonstrate how to use the fresh vegetables and fruits available at our local farmers markets and to inspire creative cooking at home. Anne Quinn Corr, local food writer, cooking instructor and chef will lead a team of Penn State Nutrition students and counselors from the Cook Like a Chef cooking camp program to demonstrate what to do with the fresh fruits and vegetables that the market vendors have for sale.
Among other things on the menu are Carrot Mojito Salad, Zucchini Puttanesca, and Sugar Snap Pea Remoulade. These will provide some out of the ordinary takes on common vegetables. Ideas for more unusual vegetables like fennel and kohlrabi will also be discussed.
Everyone attending will receive a booklet with 15 recipes for fruits and vegetables that are sourced from the Cook Like a Chef cooking camp manual. An additional handout of recipes prepared at the event will also be available.
The event will take place on Tuesday, July 15, from 2:00 to 5:00, at the Boalsburg Farmers Market, which is located at the Pennsylvania Military Museum on Bus. Route 322 in Boalsburg. As always, there is plenty of free parking available next to the market, musicians to entertain the shoppers, and tanks for kids to clamber on.
