Farm Fresh Fiesta With Stony Ridge Farms

Saturday, July 27, 6–8 p.m. | $46
Learn how to prepare your own backyard fiesta! The class is taught by local farmers Bernie and Debbie Antes, owners of Stony Ridge Farms. The class will use ingredients fresh from their farm, including their farm-raised beef. 

Class begins with a delicious homemade Mexican queso dip. For the main course, we’ll prepare an incredible juicy, and tender barbacoa beef — in the instant pressure cooker (a slow cooker version is included) — to be used in street tacos. We’ll accompany those tacos with a roasted fiesta corn salad with homemade habanero honey vinaigrette. For a sweet end to the evening, you'll learn how make, mouth-watering churro cupcakes with a cinnamon buttercream frosting. 

Participants will be invited to assist in parts of the meal preparation if they desire. Everyone will enjoy a full meal and take home recipes for all of its components.
