It's always so good to connect with folks who share my passion for good wholesome eating, especially when they happen to live in my real life neighboring state of Rhode Island. I'm pretty sure if I waved from the back deck, Leah could see me and wave right back!
Leah has a wonderful website built around handmade, home-cooking. Her upcoming class Season's Eating celebrates in-season simple menus for the family table. During the course you will tour each season, learn what foods are at their peak in flavor and freshness, and be given delicious whole food recipes to prepare for and with your family. (Including a cookbook for each season for you to revisit!) Leah understands how busy meal time is for all of us, and she is passionate about keeping things wholesome and simple. (pssst.... she has a great printable download for cooking grains here!)
A little more about Season's Eatings in Leah's words :
In season’s eatings, we explore together how to create the kind of meals, routines, and rituals that can bring this vision to life. I believe that teaching our children how to cook alongside us helps them grow in so many ways. They love being trusted to try new tasks and they flourish when they are invited to take on new responsibilities.
Over the course of this two-week journey, we will explore recipes for healthy meals that are made from whole food ingredients. The dishes are simple and I share ideas for how to assign some of the preparation tasks to any co-chefs, whether they be children, partners, friends, or neighbors. The cooking methods are straight-forward and can be prepared with basic kitchen equipment you are likely to already have in your cupboards.
family dinner, at its best,
can be a time of soul nourishment,
deep connection, play, and laughter.
