Event Overview

Impressive on the table, sweet and rich on the palate behold the squash….then cook it! It's true that the winter squash has a sort of Quasimodo quality: often knobby, misshapen, mottled, and leather-skinned. Nor does the flesh inside seem too promising in its raw state. But therein lays the miracle of cooking: As it roasts, the meat of the squash caramelizes beautifully around the edges and turns buttery and sweet in the center, while holding its gorgeous autumn hue. It's delicious served chunky, sprinkled with coarse salt, or whipped with a touch of butter or cream for a rich, smooth side. Dessert, even, can be helped by squash. And know that these dependable vegetables deliver a good dose of potassium, beta-carotene, and other phytonutrients and antioxidants—the stuff healthy cells dream of.
In this hands on cooking class we will explore the wonderful world of winter squash by making and tasting these recipes :
Roasted Acorn Squash and Quinoa Salad
Kabocha Risotto
Roasted Spaghetti Squash & Sundried Tomato Casserole
Butternut Squash Lasagna
Delicata Squash & Roasted Garlic Galette
