A new addition to the 18 Reasons calendar, 18@12 is a weekly cooking class and lunch in one sweet 60-minute package. The menu will change every week, but will always feature fast, informal fare composed of seasonal, local produce. This class is a combination of demonstration and hands-on.
This week's menu:
toasted rye berries, shaved kohlrabi, spring allium, pea shoots, pistachios
rhubarb "fool" with sheep's milk yogurt + rose sugar
