Saturday, September 8, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Ewww! Gwoss! Cooking Local Veggies with Your Children

Green veggies are amongst the most nutritious, affordable, and easy prep foods that are out there. But the common knowledge is that kids will bust down a steel plate door to either get to chocolate, or away from broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale etc.

How do you change that?

Join local celebrity chef, mom, and children’s food expert JJ Gonson from Cuisine en Locale, for a morning of cooking veggies with your children and learn how cooking together can transform your children’s affinity for those delicious local greens. The class will take place Saturday, September 8, from 10 – noon, at Kitchen, Inc., 201 Somerville Avenue in Somerville, and the cost includes produce that will be used for the class, as well as admission of one caretaker and child.  The program is sponsored by the Northeast Organic Farming Association, and costs $40 for NOFA members and $50 for non-members.  Contact Drew Love at with any queries, and sign up at
