Homefries Cookin' Again at The Durham Farmers' Market

This weekend the Market's Central Lawn will be transformed with the first meeting of the Durham Homefries Cookin' Team.  Homefries, the brainchild of Dolly from Dolly Mama Handmade Chocolates, is a free cooking class for kids from ages 9-13.  Once a month, on the third Saturday, a local chef leads the class and goes through the basics of shopping for fresh produce at the Market, following a recipe and basic cooking skills.

This week, Chef Katherine Rock from ONE Restaurant in Chapel Hill will be leading the class.  Around 9:30, Katherine and the kids will shop the Market for ingredients.  Then, Katherine will teach the kids how to make tortillas from scratch, an easy sauteed vegetable filling and pico de gallo for soft tacos.

Follow the adventures of the Homefries on their new blog where they will post stories, pictures and recipes from their cooking class! Those interested in signing a kid up for the class can email Erin.
