Cooking From the Farmers' Market
Hands On | Tasting
Chef Tracy Blizman

Class Description:
Local farmers markets are loaded with homegrown fruits and vegetables. It’s so easy to be seduced by tables full of colorful, farm-fresh produce. Experienced culinary instructor and healthy cooking expert Tracy Blizman will show you how to make excellent use of these beautiful vegetables that are available right now.  Heck why not go to the Downtown Overland Park Farmers Market before class and bring your treasures, along with any questions, to class! She’ll dish out loads of cooking methods, techniques, variations on recipes and of course expert advice such as how to recognize ripeness based on smell and texture, the best way to hold and/or preserve produce, how to clean and prep and of course how to cook it. On the menu will be dishes such as Cilantro Ginger Corn Saute, Blackened Tomato ‘Sauce’, Zucchini Pesto & Tomato Lasagna, Panzanella Salad, Almond Pesto, Blueberry Lemon Bread, and more. When we are done, all you will need to do is take the recipes from today’s class to your favorite farmers’ market, choose your treasures with confidence and then create a beautiful fresh recipe at home. You’re welcome.
