Our planning committee has met and we want to emphasize that this is a FUN tournament.  Those that take it too seriously or don’t laugh enough shall be penalized!  Also, we have revised the rules to address a couple of areas:

1.  If the game is tied after 5 innings, one extra inning will be played.  If the score is still tied, a hit off will ensue.

2.  Reasonable speed for Pitching.  You should always pitch commensurate to the batter’s capabilities.  Violators will be promptly penalized.

CSA cooking class at the Book Larder

July 17th, 2015 by Sara

Do you love the idea of a getting a CSA box, but feel overwhelmed by what to do with unfamiliar vegetables? Do you admire unusual ingredients at the farmer’s market, but walk away because you aren’t sure how to cook them? Are you curious about how a chef decides what to do with abundant seasonal produce?

Join Chef Kyle as he cooks from an Oxbow Farm CSA box. Each week he’ll make up a menu based on what’s in the box, with a few easy to get additions to complete the meal. Book Larder is a Friday pickup location for Oxbow Farm’s Oxbox program. So you can register for their program, sign up for a class, pick up your box, and go home armed with ideas of what to do with all that lovely produce.

The class is limited to 10 students and includes 2 course lunch and light dessert. Class reservations are non-refundable.

RSVP here.
