Cooking @ Appleton Farms, June 2016

~Farm Chef, Carolyn Grieco is the perfect Chef to showcase Appleton Farms fresh ingredients in her recipes. I have attended several of her classes at Appleton’s and thoroughly enjoyed not only the cooking classes but also the most recent demonstration!

~We love Farm Cooking with Carolyn! She breaks down the projects into small understandable bites, so you can easily go home and make all the dishes for yourself.


2016 “Flavors of the Farm” Event at Appleton Farms, Ipswich

We collaborated with the farmers and vintners for another fantastic ‘Flavors’ event this season!  This culinary farm tour, cooking demonstration and wine pairing dinner was created around the farm harvest and locally crafted wines, each course truly representing the flavors of this working farmstead in New England!

* All produce, cheese & dairy, and grass-fed beef from Appleton Farms, Ipswich

* Wines from Willow Spring Vineyards, Haverhill, MA, Mill River Winery, Rowley, MA, and Russell Orchards, Ipswich, MA

Appleton Farms in Ipswich….truly a special place! From the fields to the farmhouse kitchen…..such a wonderful partnership for our culinary workshops.

We love the seasons at Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro. Strawberries, Blueberries, Peaches, Corn, Apples and so much more…..right from the fields into their farm bakery!

The seasons at Smolak Farms, North Andover
