City Fruit offers cooking classes in Ballard

Posted by Geeky Swedes on September 27th, 2011

Learn to do more than just can and jar your extra fall fruit. City Fruit has always been focused on gathering fruit from residents who grow too much and donating it to local food banks. Now the non-profit is offering classes for people who want to keep some or all of their harvest.

“People often think about eating fresh fruit or freezing or canning fruit but there are other options too – these classes explore those options,” Morgan Larsen with City Fruit tells us.

Dish it up! (5320 Ballard Avenue NW) and The Pantry at Delancey (1417 NW 70th St) have both donated their space for the classes. The instructors, who are all culinary experts, have donated their time to teach the courses. “The classes focus on using fruit from the fall fruit harvest in both sweet and savory dishes,” Larsen says. The five courses include: Fruit Pies and Pastries, Demystifying Quince, Shrubs (Drinking Vinegars), Fall Fruit: From Start to Finish and Simple Fruit: Poaching, Roasting and Braising.

Cooking classes are $30 for City Fruit members, $35 for non-members. The five-class series is $120 ($140 non-members) – which means one free class. Class size is limited. Sign up via Brown Paper Tickets or send a check to City Fruit, PO Box 28577, Seattle, WA 98118. Specify the class.
