Tomorrow: Learn What the Hell to Do with the Dregs of That CSA Box

Turnips? Really? - NATHALIE L./YELP
Anyone who has ever bought a CSA box knows the feeling. Within a few days of the box's arrival, after burning through the spring onions, mixed greens, and fresh favas in a season-struck frenzy, you're looking at three pounds of beets. A few salads with walnuts and goat cheese treat you well enough, but eventually, you need to expand your repertoire ― at least enough to get through the other two pounds.

Tomorrow, Hands On Gourmet presents "CSA: Out of the Box," a workshop designed to encourage a creative approach to cooking with seasonal produce ― while supporting local producers. The produce for this class will come courtesy of Eatwell Farm, the Dixon-based purveyor of spinach, tomatoes, strawberries, eggs, and other delights. Eatwell's own Nigel Walker will be in attendance to talk about the farm's history and mission. A skilled chef will lead participants through the creation of a four-course meal. If you can spare $75 ― nearly half the cost of a four-box subscription (with eggs) to Eatwell's CSA ― to get chummy with your chives, saddle up.

CSA: Out of the Box

When: Thurs., July 22, 6-9 p.m.

Where: Hands On Gourmet Kitchen, 2325 Third St. (at 20th St.) #330, 553-8894

Cost: $75

Tickets: E-mail

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
