Also this Saturday is another opportunity to go on a walking tour with Hollywood architect, John Perkins. See below for more information.

cookingdemoCooking Demonstration with Rachel Barron              
My name is Rachel Barron. I have cooked in some lovely, small, community minded restaurants around Portland for the past 7 years or so, places such as Navarre and Nostrana, where I was able to participate and feel energized by their attention to craft and the culture from where the food originated. I enjoyed making nourishing meals from local vegetables, grains and meats. We would get deliveries of the most beautiful fruits and vegetables I have ever seen, from farms such as Ayers Creek, 47th Avenue, Gales Meadow. I got to meet farmers and thank them for growing this food for us. At Nostrana I got to build a fire and make pizzas by it.  Work was thrilling.

Within the last year or so I decided that I wanted to work more closely with people and help them have the meals they wanted to eat.  Last winter I helped a lady have her wedding dinner party, and I loved meeting with her and helping to make the evening special. It motivated me to make a change with the way I work with food and people. As a cook you often feel removed from the people eating your food, and I wanted to remedy that for myself. I now work as a personal chef.

This Saturday, Rachel Barron demonstrates how to make Fava Bean Salad with Chard & Pickled Spring Onions. Cooking Demonstrations take place at the Musician's tent on Hancock Street at 9:45 and 10:45am on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
