The history and future of food is the focus of the Los Altos History Museum’s latest exhibition, “Silicon Valley Eats: A Taste for Innovation.” Expanding on the theme, the museum has scheduled a series of cooking classes in July to bring adults together while deepening their relationship to food as they learn cooking skills from award-winning chef Joni Sare.
Inspired by the “Slow Food” movement, Sare, a leader of Slow Food South Bay, will share her passion for growing, cooking and eating food, as well as help people become organized and competent in the kitchen. Slow Food South Bay is a 20-year-old chapter of Slow Food, an international food and agriculture nonprofit group that supports good, clean, fair food for the planet.
Sessions are scheduled 6-8 p.m. July 8, 16 and 24 at the museum, 51 S. San Antonio Road. Topics will include how to use the Instant Pot, braising and improvising with seasonal ingredients in a “Stump the Chef” class, respectively.
The classes are designed for both novice and experienced cooks. Space is limited.
Cost is $75 per class. Advance registration is required.
