"Local Farms" Virtual Cooking Class

What: "Local Farms" themed virtual cooking class led by Madeline Barry of Swheat Escape to make a Gluten Free Jerusalem Artichoke, Turnip, Thyme, & Gruyere Quiche. This class is for ALL levels of experience and has vegan substitution suggestions!

When: Thursday, February 18th at 6pm

Where: Zoom

How to Sign Up and Additional Information: To sign up for the class you would pre-purchase a $9 Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op produce bag here which includes the following 3 "Local Farm" ingredients you will need to make your quiche:

  • One pound of Jerusalem Artichokes
  • One pound of Turnips
  • One Onion

All orders must be in by 2/12 at the latest. We only have room for 20 folks, so sign up soon!

After your purchase, details on how to attend the virtual event will be emailed to you closer to the date. This email will include the quiche recipe, the list of ingredients to pick up at the store to make the recipe, a zoom link for the 2/18 6pm event, and a video of how to make the pie crust in advance.

Your pre-purchased $9 LFFC produce bag will be available at the store for pick up on 2/16, 2/17, & 2/18, and you can shop for the rest of the ingredients you need for the quiche recipe while you're there!

*Important note about the pie crust itself* Because the pie crust would take too long to make during the live class, you can either opt to make a gluten free pie crust from scratch ahead of time with Madeline's instructional video we will send you in advance OR feel free to join the night of the class with a pre-purchased pie crust. Either way, please come to class on 2/18 with an already made pie crust.

About our Host: Madeline Barry - founder of Swheat Escape gluten free all purpose flour that we will be carrying at the co-op - is a gluten free cookbook author, blogger, and South Philly Food Co-op Member-Owner. It took her ten years to develop her fool-proof flour for gluten free baking!

About our "Local Farms" Theme: Our Outreach Committee chose "Local Farms" as one of our main themes of the year because when buying directly from our local farmers we are able to keep our hard-earned dollars right here in PA and reduce our impact on the environment. Plus, produce is picked at its peak so it's fresh & delicious! Eating locally means eating seasonally which is why Jerusalem Artichokes, Turnips, and Onions were highlighted for this recipe.

Thank you, Madeline Barry and Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op, for partnering with us on this delicious event!
