  • City Market Livestream: Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening
    5:30 PM-7:00 PM
    February 1, 2022

    Learn how to grow an indoor salad garden with Peter Burke! This workshop will focus on growing a steady supply of a variety of fresh greens/sprouts with only a cupboard and a windowsill. Ready to harvest in just 7 to 10 days, grow greens that are good for both fresh salads and to cook in a stir fry! Whether it is winter, or you are living in an apartment, there is no reason not to have a garden. Peter Burke will show you how to grow the bulk of your salad sprouts indoors, about 12-14 ounces a day! Great for you locavores out there—nothing is more local than your own windowsill.  

    This class will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform and joining instructions will be sent to participants in advance.

    5:30 PM-7:00 PM
    February 2, 2022

    Join City Market and Anna Mays for a hands-on, cook-along crêpe class in honor of France’s National Crêpe Day! Crêpes are a festive, fun-to-make dessert that can be dressed up with any number of toppings. In this livestream class, we will learn to make traditional sweet crêpes (crêpes sucrées) and the classic lemon syrup (sirop de citron) topping that is revered throughout France. We will also discuss fruit, chocolate and dairy topping options and creative ways to use crêpes to build other desserts. We will discuss the origins and customs around crêpe-making in Northwestern France and learn to make traditional Breton crêpes as they are still enjoyed in crêperies throughout Brittany today. We will also review the equipment needed for making authentic crêpes at home and practice some French baking terms as we work. Celebrate the 700+ year history of crêpe making and carry on the National Crêpe Day tradition!  

    Instructor Anna Mays is an anthropologist who enjoys teaching about world culinary traditions, agricultural practices and the intersection between food, diet, culture, and well-being. Anna trained at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School and has lived in France.  

    This class will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform and joining instructions along with an ingredient and equipment list will be sent to participants in advance.

  • NBNC Naturalist Journeys – Racing the Clock
    6:00 PM-7:00 PM
    February 23, 2022

    About the book (from Harper Collins Publisher): An award-winning, much-loved biologist turns his gaze on himself, using his long-distance running to illuminate the changes to a human body over a lifetime.

    Part memoir, part scientific investigation, Racing the Clock is the book biologist and natural historian Bernd Heinrich has been waiting his entire life to write. A dedicated and accomplished marathon (and ultra-marathon) runner who won his first marathon at age thirty-nine, Heinrich looks deeply at running, aging, and the body, exploring the unresolved relationship between metabolism, diet, exercise, and age.

    Racing the Clock offers fascinating and surprising conclusions, all while bringing the reader along on Heinrich’s compelling journey to what he says will be his final race—a fifty-kilometer race at age eighty.

    Co-hosted by Bear Pond Books
