Featured Speaker: Recipe Developer and Educator Greta Hardin
Greta Hardin will be co-hosting the Cooking Backwards: The Art and Science of Local and Seasonal Cooking at IFBC from 4-5:20 PM on Saturday.
Great is a cookbook author (Cooking Your Local Produce) with a High School Chemistry teacher past and a Middle School Brain and Health teacher present. In between those two teaching gigs she had my own son. This led her to hang out on local farms and get to know farmers, toddlers and parents. She saw a gap in what people wanted to know about choosing and using local food versus what they did know. This means every time she is confronted with “the seasonal cooking question” she can’t help but look at it through her teacher glasses. As a result she end up spending time working on the problem of how to teach people what they want to know, in a way they want to learn it. Current challenge: more ways to enjoy fennel, and how does it preserve best?
