Chef & Market Lunch with Shango
Discover the beauty of one of our favorite urban farmers markets by joining us for one of the three Chef & Market Lunches offered by Feed Your Soul this summer. On July's tour, we will start the adventure by meeting at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market, where we will take a tour led by food writer Christa Glennie Seychew and Chef Jim Guarino of the highly-acclaimed Shango Bistro & Wine Bar.
During the tour we will meet some of the farmers and vendors, talk about their growing methods and seasonal offerings and sample some of their wares. Chef Jim, a regular at the market, will be able to answer questions you may have about some of the more unique vegetables and fruits sold at the market, offering tips for both storing and preparing them.
Throughout the tour, the group, with the guidance of our chef, will gather the freshest of what's in season (and maybe a few extra treats) before we make our way down the street to Delish, Elmwood's favorite cooking demonstration school and bakery. At Delish, Chef Jim will lead us through a simple and impromptu hands-on lunch preparation using all of our market purchases. Finally, we will sit with cold lemonade and our fresh,light farmers market meal and reflect on the day.
