Cooking meals from scratch using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients is a great way to connect with the local farming community. Fresh, organic foods taste better, are better for the environment, and the best for your body. Come share an afternoon in the MOFGA kitchen with Thorndike resident and chef Frank Giglio. He will share simple recipes that will highlight MOFGA certified farms, local fisherman and foragers. Learn to utilize wild herbs and other ingredients to naturally cleanse the body and prepare you for the warmer weather ahead.
