About Cooking from the Island: What's Fresh and What's Local

Join us for this farm-to-table cooking experience with chef Jenny Devivo!

These classes will focus on the bounty of the season and the unique flavors of Martha’s Vineyard in coordinatation with the growing seasons of our farm. We will start with a tour of our Friendship Garden to harvest vegetables for cooking followed by hands-on meal preparation in our Teaching Kitchen. Meals will be based on what is currently growing in our garden and what can be locally sourced on island. Class will end with a shared meal on our porch. Menus TBA. Please alert to any food allergies or restrictions you may have.
