Sat, Feb 17, 2-5 pm – Fresh from the Farmers’ Market Cooking Class 

At Home with Heidi Billotto

This class takes place in my South Charlotte home kitchen. I spend nearly every Saturday morning shopping for my week at at least 2 local farmers’ markets. Farming is not just a spring and summertime occupation and so you can easily buy everything you need – products, produce and proteins too all through the year from our area’s local farmers.  I’ll shop early this Saturday morning and then come back and share what I bought as we prepare 4 fabulous courses of truly farm to table fare. You are going to love Eating Local and cooking in season!
