Great Green Goddess Salad The classic Green Goddess dressing has a hint of anchovy for umami, but if you want to leave it out, you can. Top with cooked chicken or ham for a main course salad, or serve alongside grilled shrimp. Double the amounts in the dressing ingredients to make extra for salads throughout the week!

Middle Eastern Street Foods

Street food has come of age and formal dining is increasingly being nudged aside in favor of meze-style spreads. This class pairs the Middle East's most exciting street foods with a variety of homely and simple snack recipes elicited from Tiazza's family cooking in Morocco and her travels. Together we'll create a full course dinner based on tasty Middle Eastern street foods.

Chicken Antipasto Sandwich If you like the slight tanginess of Italian marinated vegetables, you will love them paired with pesto, Asiago cheese, chicken and ham in this super sandwich. Look for a focaccia bread thick enough to split and stuff with goodies, or a wide baguette that will cradle all the delicious fillings.

Fermentation Festival- A cultured foods...

Join local fermentation educators Kirsten and Christopher Shockey, authors of newly released Fiery Ferments, and Tara Whitsitt, founder of Fermentation on Wheels, for a day of cultured foods workshops, tastings, and starter culture swapping. Learn about the benefits of fermentation and how you can creatively & fearlessly ferment in your own kitchen.

 

Free Workshops:

2pm: Wild Vegetable Fermentation by Tara Whitsitt

Discover the simple tradition of preservation through bacterial collaboration in one of its most simple forms: via the the local micro-flora of vegetables! Fermented foods heal our bodies, celebrate age-old traditions, and promote healthy eco-systems. Learn about cost effective & simple tools that will help you get started at home. This presentation includes a hands-on demonstration and the audience is encouraged to get involved.

3:30pm: Fiery Ferments by Kirsten and Christopher Shockey

Whether you like it hot and spicy, or simply fermenty and delicious, this demonstration will show how fermented vegetables has moved beyond just sauerkraut (which we happen to love). We will share techniques that will show you how to get live probiotic foods from all your condiments from mustard to hot sauce, from chutney to fermented salads. Bring your curiosity and your taste buds (yup, there will be samples). 

3:30 to 5pm: Culture Swap with Fermentation on Wheels

Tara will invite students onto the bus for tours, tastings, and fermentation talk. You are welcome to bring starter cultures of your own for exchange and discussion. If you would like to take a starter culture home with you, please bring something to trade or $10 (per starter culture).

 
Book Signing:
Kirsten and Christopher Shockey will be available for book signing throughout the event.

On Valentine’s Day, the Ashland Food Co-op turns 45 years old.

It’s hard to imagine we’ve been providing healthy, organic food to the Rogue Valley for almost half a century. From our humble beginnings as the Ashland Community Food Store to now a thriving Co-op with over 10,000 owners, it has been an honor to serve this community.

To further our sustainability efforts and to serve you better, we began offering Electronic Owner Coupons this month at the register.

No more forgetting to bring your owner coupons. No more waiting for your newsletter to arrive. Cashiers will simply ask if you want to use your owner coupons when you check out.

 

2016 had many notable moments. We hosted many successful family friendly events, added 150 more solar panels to our roof, and earned 25% of our sales for local products. We proudly donated over $24,000 to area nonprofits through our Community Grants program. We welcomed 482 new owners and averaged 3,500 daily transactions.

The food holiday season has finally arrived. This time of year is by far our most favorite. We’ve been dreaming of gingerbread cookies, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, turkey (or tofurky if that’s your fancy) and eggnog for months.

Heading to a holiday party this month, or five? No need to spend hours in the kitchen making countless appetizers, dips and desserts. After all, you just got done with a marathon of cooking and baking for Thanksgiving. Make your party going a breeze with these go-to holiday favorites from our Specialties staff.

We know, we know, November is all about turkey. But let us not forget the other, other white meat this holiday season. Chicken. This poultry meat often gets the spotlight, but during the month of November it is well deserved. Why?

Co-ops around the world share a set of guiding principles including “cooperation among cooperatives,” and “concern for community.” We take these principles to heart.

When you shop at the Co-op, you aren’t just buying groceries. You are supporting a business that cares about people and contributes to a livable, sustainable Rogue Valley.

My Italian Grandmother’s heart swells every time she sees my well-stocked pantry. I am prepared to feed an army at a moment’s notice, and sometimes that actually happens with my big family. But what my Grandma doesn’t know is how much I save by stocking my pantry with Co+op Basics products.

We take pride in supporting local farmers, producers, vendors and vintners. When we say local, we mean local. At some grocery stores, the word local gets thrown around like the word “natural,” ambiguously and with a broad definition.

But local means something to us. A definition we take meticulous pride in.

Urban fruit is copious this time of year in the Rogue Valley. It’s hard, dare we say impossible, to make enough pies, cobblers, and salads to keep up with the backyard abundance.

So what do you do with all that unpicked fruit?
