Classic Risotto & Italian Hearth Bread
Join us for this participatory class focused on a number of variations on classic risotto as well as Italian hearth breads. Northern Italy’s classic creamy rice dish is slow cooked with broth and stirred to perfection. Hearth breads are fermented doughs of whole grains and herbs traditionally baked in a wood-fired oven, but we will come very close and make our own delicious crusty loaves in a conventional oven. Local culinary and cultural expert Terry Kelzer brings more than 50 years of cooking and baking experience, as well as a delightful sense of humor, to all her classes. After 12 years working in restaurants and bakeries in the Twin Cities, she and her husband and young family moved to a small farm near Amery where they raised dairy goats, chickens, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Terry says that is when her education in the basics of real food began, along with a deep appreciation for her ancestors as she had to learn to prepare, process, and preserve everything produced on the farm on an old wood cookstove. During this time, she also cooked and baked 'from scratch' for Head Start for 26 years. Terry’s great joy is sharing with others all the things she has learned along the way. Join us and experience both her knowledge and her joy.
