Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: Culinary Anthropology Series: Part 3



With Kayla Wexelberg

Let’s discover who we are, where we’re from, and where we want to go with our food, our community, and our land. We will be focusing on the first steps to reinventing our own food culture and identity. Through hands-on classes we will go to three different continents and discover “the roots behind the roots,” and ask ourselves what are our roots, and what do we want to plant now?
Each class will include recipes that will become not just your homework, but also a practice in reflection as we dive deeper into our nourishment using not just our hands, but our minds, bodies, and souls. This class is for advanced foodie enthusiasts and those who really want to be a part of the change in our food system and stronger advocates of what is possible.
The cultures we explore will include Morocco, Japan, Eastern Europe, and Mexico. Recipes will be carefully derived from each tradition in terms of history, practice, and nutritional benefit. Gluten-free, dairy-free.\

Our third area of the world will be Mexico, where we will focus on Mexican history and influence that has been incorporated into our own food culture and system. Traditional Mexican Tortilla Soup with hominy along with fresh Tamales and Salsa will be prepared.
