Cooking Class: Rustic Native American Feast

In this exciting cooking class with Chef John, you’ll utilize a variety of ingredients to create unique, mind-blowing flavors. You’ll prepare mouth-watering squash blossoms filled with feta cheese, goat cheese and mint — then dipped in tempura batter and fried. You’ll make a wild weed salad that will shock your taste buds. For the main course, you’ll cook your choice of duck breast with cherry chutney, bison tri-tip or savory salmon prepared on Alderwood. And let’s not forget dessert: a classic chocolate chip cookie with a twist.

Chef John worked his way through the ranks of various restaurant kitchens before turning his focus toward America’s greatest food asset: its native plants. His emphasis for more than 10 years has been the ingredients indigenous to California. In his teachings, you’ll discover the history of the region’s edible vegetation and taste food in a whole new way, using ingredients foraged in Marin County.
