Weekly seasonal cooking demos will launch Saturday, June 20 at 10 a.m. at the Boulder Farmers Market.
The Boulder Farmers Market, a seasonal marketplace for locally grown produce, locally produced food products and local artisans, will host its first seasonal cooking demonstration on Saturday, June 20, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., in partnership with The Kitchen family of restaurants.
The Boulder Farmers Market and The Kitchen aim to showcase the high quality local foods available at the market, educate customers about how to prepare in-season produce, showcase chefs who are utilizing local food, and provide a fun and entertaining program at the Farmers Market.
Hugo Matheson, chef and co-founder of The Kitchen, says, “Partnering with the Boulder County Farmers’ Markets chef demo program is a great opportunity for us to connect not just with local farmers, but also with local chefs. The culinary community is such a vibrant and important piece of Boulder, and we’re excited the market has created this platform for chefs to demonstrate how cooking with local and seasonal ingredients are easy to use and delicious.”
The cooking demos will run weekly from June 20 through Sept. 3, and will feature chefs from The Kitchen as well as other local restaurants and culinary schools. The Kitchen’s executive chef, Kyle Mendenhall, will kick off the program on June 20; he will shop at the market for fresh ingredients and prepare seasonal dishes from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The Boulder and Longmont farmers markets are growers-only markets that support local farmers, ranchers and food producers. For more information about Boulder County Farmers Markets, visit bcfm.org.
