Innovative Cooking Workshop With Chef Naomi Ross. After a month of festive holidays, we’ve grown more than spiritually. It seems our waistlines have grown, too! It’s time to get our diets and eating habits back on track. Join a “vegan cleanse.” Add new, healthful recipes to your repertoire and learn tips for well-balanced vegetarian and vegan eating and menu planning. Enjoy learning new techniques and recipes that will not leave you craving or hungry. Recipes may include: warm curried lentil salad, seared tofu with peanut sauce and “zoodles,” Moroccan chickpea stew, and poached pears with maple-wine reduction. Wednesday, November 5, 10:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. $60.
