21 Acres- Class this Thursday, the 12th

Hi all-

We are very excited to be teaming up with 21 Acres in Woodinville Washington to be teaching a class this Thursday, the 12th, entitled “Every Bite: Preparing a Sustainable Holiday Feast” (6:30-8:30). The class will include recipes and ideas as to what to do with your extra food at the holidays. We would love to hear any things you do with your leftovers that we can pass along!

21 Acres is an organic, sustainable agricultural center, aimed at promoting clean, healthy eating. Situated on 21 acres in the Woodinville valley, 3 acres contain the building facilities (for cooking classes, farmers’ market, offices, and event rental space), and the back 18 utilize the principles found in permaculture. Take a look at their website and all they have to offer:

And here is a great video from their site about them:

Hope to see you Thursday at 21 Acres!


1 Year Anniversary!

We can’t hardly believe it, but we recently celebrated working on the cookbook for one year! I remember taking pictures of Karen and her deliciously prepared food during a cooking class last March.  After the class was over,  we were relaxing with a glass of Malbec and talking about projects to do together in the future. The next thing you know, we were like “we should work on a cookbook together! There’s really nothing out there like what we want to do!”


And so Waste Free Cooking was born.

We recently had a celebratory dinner starting with appetizers and cocktails at Mistral Kitchen, and followed by some seriously delicious food (and a few more cocktails!) at Local 360. We had a great time and we recommend trying those 2 restaurants if you haven’t!


This past year has been exciting, difficult, thrilling, fun, and has involved an extreme amount of hard work. We wouldn’t change it for the world and look forward to our next year together!
