Culinary Education

Our comprehensive culinary program provides the tools, knowledge and motivation needed to cook and to eat in balance with the seasons and the environment. As the kitchen is the heart of a healthy home, the TIOSN kitchen is the place where nutrition, foraging and the harvest come together. Classes feature locally sourced produce and products used to create recipes that sustain good health, and lay a solid foundation for continued experimentation and learning in your own home.

-Pantry basics     -Knife skills      -Whole grain and legume primers

-Sourdough    -Fermentation    -Elimination diet    -Cheese making

-Dehydrating    -Extending the harvest    -Sprouting    -Bone broths

In TIOSN’s kitchen, creativity, learning, sharing and inspiration are combined with the best each season has to offer to provide the medicine needed for sustainable health and nutrition.
