Evergreen Foraging with Maria Wesserle

Just because it’s the dead of winter doesn’t mean you have to stop foraging! Evergreens are easy to spot amongst the otherwise grey landscape, and they have a long history of treating coughs and colds, and supplying much-needed vitamins A and C during the winter. They have been used by Nordic cooks to brighten flavors and have caught the attention of New Nordic Cuisine chefs for new, experimental foods. 
This class will focus on traditional uses as you make make pine-infused vinegar, pine switchel, hot tea, juniper salt and a bit of juniper butter to spread on tasty slices of rye bread. Join Maria Wesserle, founder of Four Season Foraging to learn which evergreens to harvest and which to avoid. Together, you will go over identification of different evergreen species, and foraging etiquette.

Gingerbread Wonderland Kits - Baking Party (2 of 2)

  • Midtown Global Market - Kitchen in the Market (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In Norway, there is a concept called Dugnad in which friends and families come together in a social way to help see a community project to completion. We seek to create another access point for families, organizations, and educational groups to start their own gingerbread decorating traditions by gathering a team to donate to create gingerbread house kits that include cookie walls, candy to decorate, and a royal icing recipe to assemble them all!

Participants will go home with an official Gingerbread Wonderland apron, a gingerbread kit to decorate themselves or pass along, and plenty of baking tips and practice to make their own gingerbread structure. Participants will also be recognized for their donation throughout the length of the exhibit.
