Loving and Cooking with Your CSA with Comeback Farm and Cabbage Throw Farm!

May 13, 2021, 6-7:15pm

NOFA-NJ, The Suppers Program and Jammin’ Crepes are pleased to announce that every month on the second Thursday evening from April through September, we will offer an introduction to an NJ Organic Farm & its farmers, learn about their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program, and cook from their Farm Share. The cooking class will be taught by Kim Rizk, NOFA-NJ Treasurer and Board member, and a co-owner of Jammin’ Crepes, a Princeton restaurant that is a celebration of our local, regional farms wrapped in a crêpe with an ever-changing menu that highlights the very best local ingredients at their peak of freshness. Tony Kennette will be filming our local farms and interviewing farmers. Kim will be preparing recipes that come from farm shares ad will inspire us to cook and eat more local organic. This month, learn about Farmer Mark Canright of Comback Farm and Farmers Dean and Emily Buttacavoli of Cabbage Throw Farm
