Massaged kale, pate, and lots of fun: Whole Foods Cooking class, Dec. 8 & 9

What do massaged kale, nut milk, dolmas, pate and lots of laughter have in common? One of The Wellspring School’s Whole Foods Cooking classes! As part of our Wholistic Nutrition Program, students are required to take two whole foods cooking weekends, where they learn how to create menus, work with real foods to address various sensitivities and dietary requirements and build the tools needed to help future clients.

And did we mention fun and lots of food? The cooking classes are open to the public, space permitting. The next cooking class is coming up on Saturday and Sunday, December 8th & 9th, from 9:00-5:00 both days. The class is led by Tressa Yellig, owner and executive chef of Portland’s Salt, Fire and Time. December’s class will include lessons on fermentation, working with ingredients on hand, adding spice to dishes, menu planning and so much more!

What’s Cooking at The Wellspring School?

WHAT A GREAT CLASS!

Last weekend in Boise, Wholistic Nutrition students had the opportunity to don aprons and roll up their sleeves for two days in the kitchen with Tressa Yellig, Executive Chef and Owner of Salt, Fire & Time in Portland. Tressa kept the students going non-stop with two packed days. Topics covered included -cooking with spices, working with ingredients you have on hand, making tasty substitutions (GF, DF, SF, etc.), re-working traditional Thanksgiving dishes, cooking with different meat cuts, and fermentation. Oh, and lots of tasting!

Needless to say, students left tired but happy lugging jars of homemade ginger ale and goji berry sauerkraut, lots of new recipes  and increased confidence in their ability to make healthy and tasty foods for all kinds of dietary needs for themselves and future clients. Cooking classes are part of our nutrition program and an incredible hands on experience. Probably the best “lab” class you will ever come across. We will be offering additional cooking classes in 2012 so stay tuned.

The next nutrition class is this weekend (11/12 & 11/13) in Portland, Western Nutrition I. Check out our website for a complete listing of classes in both Boise and Portland.
