Too Much is Never Enough: How to Make the Most of Extra...Money, Food & Everything Else.
May 10, 2017 | 5:00pm-7:00pm | Commonwealth Restaurant, 11 Broad Canal Way, Cambridge

Have you ever received a little (or a lot of) extra money - whether it be from a raise or bonus, an inheritance, or maybe winning the lottery? Do you ask yourself:
  • Should I pay off debt?
  • Should I invest?
  • Should I just take an awesome vacation?
While this decision is a personal one, our speakers from Society of Grownups have tips for handling this kind of scenario. 

And to make the evening interactive, we'll also be covering what to do with excess food!

We can all think of a time when we had too much of something...maybe zucchini from a garden, maybe a CSA share with more cabbage than you knew what to do with. Rich Shih, regionally known cook and food educator with OurCookQuest, and self-professed food-adventurer, will get us thinking about how to make the most of excess food. The evening's activities will focus on apples (usually the first fruit in a CSA and available most of the year and include:
  • Techniques and variations for preparing sweet treats and out-of-the-box savory ideas. (Think caramel apple butter, barbeque sauce, soda and recipes including them)
  • Fermented applications for ingredients like kombucha and hard cider.
  • Minimizing food waste by using a whole food approach to cooking.
As a bonus, you will make your own kombucha to take home. There will be inspired drinks and snacks served throughout the evening. The presentation will be interactive so be prepared to participate.
