Cooking Class : April 16th

Turner Farm and Laura Robinson will hold a hands-on, farm-to-table cooking class in the Meshewa kitchen on April 16th, from 10AM – 1PM. This is the fourth in a series of classes that will focus on essential cooking techniques using seasonal ingredients picked fresh from the farm.

Risotto is one of very few dishes that is generally better prepared at home than in a restaurant. This is mainly due to the fact that world-class risotto has no effective shortcuts and is never prepared ahead of time. In this class you will learn proper risotto-making techniques and the science behind each indispensible step. As always, we will integrate food from the farm to create a few seasonal varieties of the dish.

The class will begin in the Meshewa kitchen, located at 7550 Given Road in Cincinnati. After we finish eating (and weather permitting), we will tour the Turner Farm gardens. Please dress appropriately.

To sign up, please visit the “cooking class” tab of Laura’s website: The cost of the class is $35. Email Laura with any questions at
