Carlos Salgado, best new chef in the country by Food & Wine magazine
, will join us at the farmers market to show us some of his favorite stalls and share some market insight.
This hands-on workshop will feature two eco-chefs
as they guide participants in creating the same dish several ways, using different budgets and through different lenses of social and economic access to food.
On the first day, participants will take a van ride to a local Farmers Market and a local convenience grocery store with Chef Roger Feely
to shop with an investigative lens taking a look behind the packaging of everyday ingredients.
The following day, participants will meet with Chef Bryant Terry
(visiting eco-chef from San Francisco) at the Anteater Recreation Center kitchen to examine and discuss what we purchased. Together with chefs Bryant and Roger we will cook a meal in groups and engage in discussion while dining.
This is a two-part workshop. Participants are asked to attend both days.
Day 1 – August 29 – 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (start location is the UCI Arboretum
Day 2 – August 30 – 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (start location is at the Anteater Recreation Center kitchen
