food for thought

  • The gluten-free baking class (details to the right) with OSU Extension Master Food Preservers will be held next Saturday (April 4), not this Saturday, as printed today in the Register-Guard‘s Community Notes.  The class will be held at Food for Lane County, and Diane Connell of the Eugene Gluten Intolerance Group will be answering questions and providing local resources.
  • The class this Saturday (March 28)?  That’s the candy-making class, at which you’ll learn to make a wide variety of yummy treats, including fudge, nut clusters, and marshmallows. This class will be held at the OSU Extension Building.  Both classes are appropriate for beginners, and you can’t beat the price: thirty bucks.
  • Also noteworthy:  the City Club of Eugene forum this week will feature David Turner, Lynne Fessenden, and Douglas Frazer, individuals involved in our local food movement in different ways, discussing “Locavores: Eat Local/Be Happy.”  David will discuss the history of local produce markets; Lynne (who heads up the Willamette Farm and Food Coalition) will talk about local food system rebuilding, and Douglas will talk about his experiences with Eugene Local Foods.  You can attend the forum at the Downtown Athletic Club at 11:50 am on Friday (March 27) for $5, or listen to the broadcast on KLCC at 6:30 pm on the following Monday.

What else is going on around town in the food universe?  I’d love to hear what you’ve got.

    Hi, Jennifer! Are there 2 candy-making classes or is the April 4th class the gluten-free class?
