Salads Are Never Boring

Event description

Join us for a Farm-to-Table cooking demo featuring Chef Stephanie Eyocko. 

Too often, salads are an afterthought—a hastily prepared side dish that satisfies the need for a vegetable on the dinner table. But with this class you’ll learn that paying attention to the details and knowing the right techniques make all the difference in preparing a salad that constitutes an entire meal—and, most importantly, a never-boring meal you’ll want to eat time and time and again. Join Chef Eyocko for this introductory salad-making class designed to teach you how to make an umami-forward Lentil Swiss Chard Salad with Grilled Oyster Mushrooms.

In this class, Chef Eyocko will share her own professional expertise on how to create the perfect balance of flavors in one bite. We’ll also cover the topics of how to prepare Swiss chard; how to wash, dry, and store greens; and the differences between salad greens.

Chef Eyocko will be providing amuse bouche for the attendees. This is a very hands-on course.

Note about Sliding Scale Ticket Pricing:

A sliding fee scale is a tool for building economic justice, and it requires your active participation. If a sliding scale is implemented effectively, everyone pays a similar percentage of their income for the same products or services. A wide range of payment options across the scale promotes broader accessibility, while insuring fair compensation to the producer. Paying according to one’s available resources creates a more equitable system for pricing of products and services.

Sliding scales are often based on individual income levels, with people of higher incomes paying more. However, many factors complicate and affect our financial status. Some groups of people have costs that the larger population does not. Others have access to resources that are not always reflected in their lifestyle choices and income levels. Please consider both your class background and earning power when choosing your payment level.

Consider paying less on the scale if you..

  • are supporting children or have other dependents
  • have significant debt
  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • are eligible for public assistance
  • have immigration-related expenses
  • are an elder with limited financial support
  • are an unpaid community organizer
  • are a returning citizen who has been denied work due to incarceration history
  • experience discrimination in hiring or pay level
  • are descended from enslaved people or Native American Indians 

Consider paying more on the scale if you:

  • own the home you live in
  • have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money
  • travel for recreation
  • have access to family money and resources in times of need
  • work part time or are unemployed by choice, including unemployment due to full-time school in a degree-earning program
  • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education (or gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.) Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, we ask you to recognize this as a choice.
