Cooking Demonstrations at Morris Market on December 16
Edmeston, New York, December 7, 2016 … Pathfinder Produce, a new weekly market offered each Friday in Morris at the United Methodist Church Hall, 17 Church Street, will feature cooking demonstrations with Chef Matt Grady on Friday, December 16, from 1 to 4 p.m. The market is new on the scene, having opened its doors to the public in late October.
The produce market is a partnership program among the Morris Central School’s 5210 Program, the United Methodist Church, and Pathfinder Village, Edmeston. The collaboration offers a convenient way for local residents to access fresh fruits and vegetables, a key way to promote health and counter obesity. Local 5210 programs are coordinated through the Bassett Research Institute, Cooperstown, which works to encourage regional residents to cultivate better health through four key daily practices: eating five servings of fruits and vegetables, limiting recreational screen time to two hours, exercising for one hour, and eliminating all sugar-laden beverages.
Chef Matt Grady is the owner of Stagecoach Coffee, Cooperstown. On December 16, Chef Grady will use ingredients available at Pathfinder Produce to create and share two savory dishes: Spinach Salad with Apple, Beet, Cheese Curd and Vinaigrette, and Braised Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Onion, Fresh Cranberry, Bacon & Balsamic Drizzle. Both recipes combine readily available ingredients in unexpected and zesty ways, and can enliven family meals.
Pathfinder Produce, which also has a weekly market on Thursday afternoons in Edmeston, offers a wide selection of fresh, competitively priced produce to help area families meet their nutritional needs. Weekly market updates and prices are available through an email list, are posted at Pathfinder Village’s Facebook page, as well as at the market blog, pathfinderproduce.blogspot.com.
Pathfinder Village is an internationally respected open-access community in upstate New York, and was founded in 1980 to provide people living with Down syndrome and other disabilities an independent and fulfilling lifestyle.
