Make Soup, Not Waste: Live Cooking Workshop with Anne-Marie Bonneau

Make Soup, Not Waste: Live Cooking Workshop with Anne-Marie Bonneau

Registration is required. Sign up below to receive the Zoom link on the morning of the event. 

Bring whatever vegetables you have on hand to this workshop and cook a vat of healthy soup that both warms and nourishes. Your soup will reduce food waste, save money and conserve resources: the food itself plus all the water, energy, labor, land and fertilizers that went into producing the food. No two pots will be the same!

Please note that you are not required to participate in the live cooking workshop in order to attend. You are welcome to simply watch and not cook.

Cookbook author, blogger, fermenter and sourdough baker Anne Marie Bonneau went plastic-free in 2011 after learning about plastic's devastating impacts on our oceans and their inhabitants. Through social media, her blog and her book The Zero-Waste Chef: Plant-Forward Recipes and Tips for a Sustainable Kitchen and Planet, Anne-Marie shows others how reducing their trash not only benefits the planet but also satisfies their taste buds, improves their well-being and boosts their bank accounts.
