Pasture to Plate: Bounty of the Three Sisters Taco Night
Bounty of the Three Sisters Taco Night 8/12
The three sisters garden is a native American tradition of companion planting. The three plants referred to as the "three sisters" are any variety of corn, beans and squash that thrive when they are planted together. At the Farm Institute friendship garden you will find this in practice; the corn provides stalks that the beans can climb and grow from, the shade provided by the two make the ideal climate for the squash to thrive on the ground.
For this class we will do a garden tour and brief talk with garden manager Rebecca Sanders and then make a delicious meal based on the three sisters. We will make handmade corn tortillas with other grains from our garden. We will harvest and prepare delicious vegetable tacos with the beans and squash growing below the corn. We will also make elote (Mexican street corn), salsa fresca, pickled onions and other flavorful accompaniments from the bounty of the garden!
Our Monday culinary education programing will focus on the bounty of the season and the unique flavors of Martha's Vineyard. We will coordinate our classes with the growing seasons of our farm to highlight seasonal, sustainable and healthy food practices. Participants will learn new and exciting ways to source and prepare food. Space is limited for these hands-on meals, pre-registration is required.
