Impact Hub Bern, Spitalgasse 28, 3011 Bern

20 CHF for Impact Hub members / 30 CHF for non-members or 50 CHF for both sessions of the month

Jan 18 and Feb 1: Winter vegetables, leaf to root

You think the humble winter cannot possibly compete with summer’s decadent abundance? You are bored of bland boiled beetroot, knobbly celery and cabbage, cabbage, cabbage? Then come with me on a winter wonderland journey! We will learn about everything from fascinating roots to fresh green leaves; how to approach the abundance of little known roots and tubers on the market stand; how to massage kale into a wonderful raw salad; how to transform the common cabbage to a culinary superstar; how to make Brussels-sprouts sing; how to use all parts of the plant, including peels, roots, seeds and what you thought were inedible greens; and much more! You will come away with new insights and inspiration about produce you are already familiar with, as well as get a glimpse of an undiscovered world of winter roots and leaves that you will feel confident and empowered to explore.

Feb 15 and March 1: Protein power pulses

You think humble lentils and beans cannot possibly compete with a sexy seitan or meaty steak? You are bored of bland hummus, mushy beans, tasteless lentils? Then come with me on a journey to explore the stars of the plant protein world! We will learn about convenient lentils, versatile chickpeas, and hearty beans; how to soak, cook and sprout them; flavour combinations from near and far; where to find exciting, less-common varieties and what to do with them; their nutritional value; and much more! You will come away with new insights and inspiration about those everyday varieties you are already familiar with, as well as get a glimpse of an undiscovered world of pulses that you will feel confident and empowered to explore.
