Chef’s Class: CIA Farm to Table
Mar 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Farm to table is more than a restaurant buzz word — it’s a frame of mind, and you don’t have to be a farmer or a chef to get in on the fun. The Napa Valley is home to some of the world’s best produce, some grown right here at the CIA, and in this chef demonstration, you’ll learn tips, tricks, and techniques to use the best of your farmers’ market finds to create meals that are full of flavor, rich in nutrients, and good for your community.

This class is in partnership with our CIA Farm Manager, Matthew Gunn, as we create seasonal dishes based on what is available in our garden and farm at the CIA. Each delivery, we will receive different items and create farm to table recipes with “market basket” ingredients so that you can experience the freshest version of our creativity!

All Things Avian: Tres Sabores Field Day
Mar 21 @ 8:00 pm – 12:30 pm

You will gain valuable experience in planning for practices aimed at attracting beneficial birds and other natural enemies.
