Whole Chicken Cooking Class : June 11th, 10AM-1PM

Buying a whole chichen is an economical alternative to buying pre-cut parts. However, “breaking it down” and properly cooking each piece can be intimidating. Join Dandelion and Turner Farm in the kitchen for step-by-step, hands-on instruction on how to safely and efficiently break down a whole chicken into breasts, wings, thighs and drumsticks. You’ll learn the best cooking procedures for each piece and then end the class by preparing a few recipes together. Don’t be surprised if you leave with a new “favorite piece.” Visit the cooking classes tab of Dandelion's website to sign up. The cost of the class is $50.

Quick Bread Class : May 14th 10AM - 1PM

Dandelion, in collaboration with Turner Farm, is holding a class focusing on quick breads - that is, breads made quickly by using a leavener other than yeast. Made fresh and at home these breads are not only "quick", but easily surpass the flavor and texture of any store-bought or pre-packaged option. We will discuss different types of quick bread, mixing techniques and flavor additions. We will also have hands-on experience making two styles of quick bread: 1) biscuits in a savory application and 2) scones in a sweet application. They will be served with various accompaniments from the farm so you won't leave hungry. To sign up, visit the "cooking classes" tab of Laura's website: The cost of the class is $35.
