Fall Harvest Potluck

Last year we had a fabulous fall potluck where everyone shared a dish made from their garden and listened to Deborah Madison talk about her garden. Of course maybe you didn’t have a garden this year, so this would be the time to come and find out what Home Grown NM is about and learn from other gardeners. So please show up-we would love to see you all!

POTLUCK, POTLUCK, READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Hey everybody we are having a potluck! We’re excited and want you all to show up! People interested in gardening in Santa Fe, Home Grown New Mexico, fellow gardeners, and sustainable types-this is the potluck for you. We’ve all been busy in our gardens this season and what a fabulous season it’s been with all this rain but now it’s time to take a break, get social and share your garden booty. It should be great fun, inspirational and tasty too.

To top it off , Deborah Madison will be our guest speaker. Her talk, ‘From the Kitchen and Into the Garden (and perhaps staying there!)’ will be about different ways one comes to the garden, how it happened to her, is happening, and what matters (herbs!, curiosity, etc.). Deborah Madison is the author of 10 books and lives here in Galisteo. Her latest books are, ‘The New VEGETARIAN COOKING For Everyone’ and ‘Vegetable Literacy’. If you haven’t heard Deborah speak, she is very engaging and fun to listen to.  We can’t wait to hear what she’s been up to!

Chèvre Cheesemaking Class
How to make Chèvre goat cheese
Time: 10:00 am-12:00 pm
Instructor: Diane Pratt
Location: Whole Food’s Community Room (St. Francis location)

Learn how to make Chèvre goat cheese
In France and Italy goat cheese goes back hundreds of years and it is no less popular today. In the New World, Laura Chenel introduced her version of fresh goat cheeses to Alice Waters at Chez Panisse in Berkeley. Chèvre, the French term for goat, has come to mean mild, fresh goat cheese in the United States.

The American palette was quickly awakened to this new version of an ancient cheese and the rest was history. Thus was born a new era in cheese making in America and a very big reason in the rise of American Artisan Cheese Making.

Diane has been milking goats and making her own goat cheese for over 20 years.  She now belongs to a goat tending Co-op and milks her three goats once a week.  She uses the fresh raw goats milk to produce delicious chèvre, ricotta, feta and other artisan cheeses for her family and friends.I LOVE GOAT CHEESE

Participants in this cheesemaking class should bring a clean quart jar to take home their own bit of chèvre.

Suggested $10 donation or become a 2014 Member for $35 with free classes and potlucks.
