This workshop will be an exploration of three ancient grains: barley, kasha, and spelt. Participants will learn about the origins, uses, and cooking methods of these grains. We’ll conduct a taste test of several grains and learn how to use them in variety of unique and everyday meals. In this hands-on class, participants will practice cooking techniques as a group by preparing and sampling three dishes that feature a different grain. Recipes and workshop handouts included.
