Join plant-based chef Nancy Travis as we explore how to create the perfect hearty salad for an entrée or side – combining greens with beans, grains, vegetables, nuts, seeds and the perfect dressing to compliment the whole dish beautifully.
We will go over the basics of all the components of a great salad, how to make salad last, ingredients that pack a healthy punch and more. In class, Nancy will create a number of fantastic salads, dressings including oil free options and that will give you a creative spark to create your own healthy, hearty salads.
This hands-on introduction to BARN's Kitchen allows participants time to work through a recipe, be trained on various pieces of equipment (ovens, induction burners, Kitchen Aide mixers, and/or food processors), as well as, orient themselves to BARN's Kitchen. BARN's Kitchen is permitted by the Kitsap Health Department. This requires food novices to become familiar with appropriate methods of food preparation for public consumption, storing food and kitchen cleanliness. These standards will be reviewed and practiced as a part of the orientation production.
