Community Dinner: Beans with Marie and Rancho Gordo

February 22, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST


You might have sung about beans, the magical fruit on the playground, but if beans aren’t in your regular rotation in your diet, come to this month’s Community Dinner for inspiration and great eats! Our chef instructor, Marie Brennan, is cooking up her first Community Dinner to reflect a few ingredients she loves dearly. If you haven’t had a chance to take a class with chef instructor Marie, her classes feature plant-based recipes that are fun and bold, and this dinner is not an exception!

Our dinner tonight features Rancho Gordo’s Yellow Eyed Beans, which they have generously donated for this event. Beans are not only delicious, but also nutritious, affordable and versatile. Complementing the beans will be best of this season’s produce, roasted to perfection and topped with a signature pop of texture and flavor: shiitake bacon. On the side will be freshly baked seeded bread, topped with butter boosted with one of Marie’s favorite sources of umami: miso.

Join us for a full-flavored, action-packed party of a menu!
