Warner hosts cooking demos: Eat Fresh with the Market Chef

The Warner Area Farmers Market has scheduled outdoor cooking demonstrations Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The series — “Eat Fresh with the Market Chef” — focuses on local foods in season and continues for most Saturdays until October 13, 2012. The farmers market is held on the Town Hall lawn, 9 to noon.

Presenters include chefs from:

  • local restaurants
  • presenters from local organic farms
  • a market that features NH made food products and
  • the UNH cooperative extension office.

“We have an amazing line-up with a variety of topics,” said Suzanne Bohman,  manager of the Warner Area Farmers Market.

Topics include summer salads and salsa, family menus using fresh ingredients, healthy cooking, mozzarella cheese from local milk, and tamales using local corn.

There is something for everyone—from the gourmet foodie to the busy mom wanting a simple but healthy meal. Our presenters will focus on fresh ingredients put together in creative ways. In most demos, recipes will be available and samples will be given away. – Suzanne Bohman from the Warner Area Farmers Market

The series is a result of the Warner Area Farmers Market participating in a project funded by the Capital Area Wellness Coalition, a collaborative volunteer organization in Concord dedicated to creating a healthier community.

The goal of the Healthy Foods Subcommittee in 2012 is to increase community access to healthy locally produced food.

This project has been supported by Kearsarge Area Eat Local (KAEL), a group of volunteers dedicated to increasing accessibility to local foods by cultivating relationships between farmers, growers and consumers and by the Warner Area Farmers Market, a source of fresh local products since 1974.
