This class presented is presented as part of a partnership between
the Duluth Folk School and the Duluth Community Garden Program *
Duluth’s 2019 Vegetable of the Year is… The Rutabaga!!
Join us for a celebration of the Rutabaga in poetry, art, and human life.
We’ll explore the natural history of this fascinating food as well as its multiplicity of uses in the kitchen. From mashed to mandolined; spiraled to simmered; from fried to fileted; or cubed or custard, the rutabaga is a underutilized dietary staple of the North. We’ll also be doing some rutabaga tasting!
Much like the wandering tendrils of this robust tuber we’ll meander into rutabaga arts and participants will create their own root based propaganda!
Stories, recipes, tastings, and information about Duluth’s 2019 Vegetable of the Year – the rutabaga! Everyone will go home with a rutabaga of their own
This class is appropriate for any skill level.

* If you choose the “+ $10 DCGP Donation” registration option, the Duluth Community Garden Program will receive all $10 for programming support. The Duluth Folk School will be including this option for all DFS/DCGP co-presented classes this year, so the 10-15 people per class, multiplied by a year’s worth of classes could bring the DCGP important additional revenue.
