Sharon Hanna – The Book of Kale
Sharon Hanna will be discussing the nutritional benefits of Kale, giving away a couple of her books as door prizes, and will be doing a book signing at the event!
Kaleâ€”one of the most nutrient-dense greens in existenceâ€”has been growing for thousands of years without any fuss. Yet, despite the fact that kale is lauded as a miracle food, and most people know that they should be eating it, many donâ€™t know how to make it taste good.
In her book, kale-evangelist Sharon Hanna provides more than eighty simple but superb recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Dishes ranging fromKale Chips to Kale and Potato Torta or Scalloped Kale with Browned Butter & Sage will blow kale skeptics out of the kitchen. This garden-to-kitchen guide gives readers all they need to know to grow this super-sustainable crop organicallyâ€”as edible landscaping, on balconies and boulevards and even indoors. And, aspiring locavores take noteâ€”purple, silvery-green, frilly, stately Tuscan and rainbow-hued kale can all be grown year-round throughout North America, helping families save hundreds of dollars a year on grocery bills.
Best of all, learn how to teach kids to love kaleâ€”both growing and eating itâ€”with inspiration derived from this authorâ€™s many years as an award-winning coordinator of an inner-city school garden program.

RightOvers is an online marketplace for home-cooked meals. We are connecting community chefs, already cooking dinner for their household and willing to produce extra portions, with neighbours willing to purchase them. Community chefs set the price per portion and get to recoup some (or all) of the cost of their own meal(s). They also receive the discounts associated with purchasing ingredients in larger quantities. Neighbours, who due to lack of time, culinary ability or desire, get a healthier alternative to convenience options such as fast-food and frozen dinners. It’s win-win for everyone, so sign up today at RightOvers.com
