The first program, Community Pizza Night, will be led by Little Flour Microbakery owner Deborah LeMoine who also volunteers as an OFS’ culinary instructor along with The Wine Merchant owner Jason Main. LeMoine will share her recipe for homemade pizza made with whole grain dough and garden fresh toppings. She will discuss the many ways people can work together to feed those in their own kitchen and throughout the community. Main will share his favorite wines for pairing with pizzas.
Tickets are $50 per person and include delicious food, class instruction, and wine. Proceeds will fund cooking and nutrition education programs for children and families throughout the community. Reservations are required since the program is only open to the first 50 registrants.
