The local farmers markets are exploding with all sorts of fresh summer veggies. Join us for an informative evening as you learn to use these farm-fresh gems to build your arsenal of recipes and salad making techniques that will keep your body strong and the menus from getting boring!  Even better we will learn how to personalize those salads and change up things to keep it interesting. 

Chef Gary Hild is eager to teach essential culinary techniques such as knife skills, mixing, whisking, and more as he explores the art of the well-balanced salad… from simple composed salads and grilled salads to full-dinner salads that add grains, vegetables, fruits and a discussion of various proteins suitable for a heartier salad (including seafood and chicken options for meat-eaters). This isn’t just about lettuce, folks, but a great variety of vegetable preparation with emphasis on utilizing the right amount of calories for optimal energy.

Chef Gary is a pro at whipping up flavorful and healthy salad dressings with tips for making them your own, including the proper way to make reductions. And, because a great dressing must begin with include a quality oil, he’ll also lead a discussion on olive oils, including an olive oil tasting.

These are recipes and techniques that you’ll be using over and over. You’ll also get some hands-on cooking time next to Chef Gary. It doesn’t get better than that, folks.
