About Locally Grown & Delicious with Casey Mazar-Kelley

Think seasonal cooking is best left to the months of July and August? Think again!

Join Casey Mazar-Kelley in this monthly class on how to make comforting, delicious and yes local, meals in January, February, and March! Every month we will base our recipes on what we pick up from Island Grown Initiative’s CSA and what is available at other island farms. Classes are hands-on and participants will prepare a meal together that will then be shared around the table at the end of the class.
