HARDWICK – The Grow Your Own Program is offering a free (pre-registration required) workshop on dumpling making on Saturday, March 25, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Dumplings show up in different forms and styles throughout many different regions around the globe. They are a nourishing way to utilize a variety of protein sources and vegetables on hand, and can be a way to use up leftovers or stretch a food budget. Join self-taught dumpling maker Captolia Santamore in the kitchen, to learn how to create a combinations of flavors. Learn the techniques of filling and folding, and about the different ways to cook dumplings. After making a variety of dumplings, the workshop will end with a dipping party, exploring the possibilities of dipping sauces. Children are welcome to accompany adults: very young children will need an on-site activity in the hallway to keep them occupied. Grow Your Own is a project of the Hardwick Area Food Pantry and the Center for an Agricultural Economy. Register by March 22. Space is limited in this workshop. Donations can be made online for those who wish to contribute, but workshops are always free for participants.
The workshop will be held at the Center for an Agricultural Economy at 140 Junction Road.
