September 21 National Pecan Cookie Day
Sunday, September 21st
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo,
September 21 National Pecan Cookie Day
Go a little nuts with your cookies - September 21 is National Pecan Cookie Day.
 
You can create your own pecan cookie adventure, or recipe, today! It's one of those lovely munchies that you can make a multitude of ways, and none of them are wrong.
 
We already celebrated pecan sandies, but you can also raise a toast to pecans by tossing them into cookie dough alongside chocolate chunks, raisins and oatmeal, caramel, orange or lots of butter. Pop 'em on top or chop them into pieces - no matter how you like them, pecans are a great addition to your favorite cookie recipe.
 
But beware - it's how you pronounce "pecan" that's nuttin' but trouble.

Cooking with Chef Hollie for the Whole Kids Foundation
Wednesday, September 24th
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo, $7 per person donation to benefit The Whole Kids Foundation

We are thrilled to be partnering with Chef Hollie, the founder of Joyfoodly, on this amazing instrucional kids cooking demo...especially given they'll benefit the Whole Kids Foundation.

We'll help your family find incredible value with our Private Label 365 brand, load up your shopping carts with in season produce and real food, and we'll get them excited to cook simple meals at home with their kids. What could be better?

In the beginning of school, it's tough to cook every night. Here is a great and easy idea for a veggie focused meal with a theme of making one meal stretch.

This afternoon, we are preparing Chef Holllie's "Sweet Pear n Crazy Cool Celeriac Salad"--it has dried cranberries and toasted walnuts with a buttermilk tarragon dressing the kids can shake in a jar. It will be a hit!

Details: Adults with Kids ages 7-11 are welcome, Max is 20 people (5 per table), $7 donation per person will be collected checkin. Please provide the name and age of your child and advise us of any nut allergies. Deadline to sign up is at noon on the day of the event. And Waitlist will be set up as well.

Please meet us at the Customer Service Booth at 2:50pm sharp as we are starting at 3pm sharp!

Let's welcome Chef Hollie to San Mateo and let's get cooking to fundraise for The Whole Kids Foundation!
