 This month, we will be doing the GREEN HOLIDAY HUMMUS and the EYE SEE YOU STIR FRY.

As practiced in participating classrooms throughout the country, kids will be invited to help prepare Veggiecation Program’s recipes, sample culinary creations, experience vegetables in their raw form and cast a vote on how they liked the recipes.  Kids will take home complimentary character coloring pages, word games, mazes and stickers.  Parents will receive a copy of recipes created that day.

Please register in advance at Customer Service or email Ridgewood.RSVP@wholefoods.com.  Age group for this program incorporates kids from Kindergarten to 6th grade.

About Veggiecation: The Veggiecation ©Program, founded by Lisa Suriano (also a native of Ridgewood!), is a nutrition education program that introduces young children to the wonderfully delicious & nutritious world of vegetables. This is done by incorporating unique & kid-friendly vegetable preparations into fun activities & exciting experiences. By replacing food fears & resistance with ownership & positive peer pressure, your children are empowered to expand their horizons while simultaneously improving their nutritional status & knowledge

From Saigon to New York City, street foods are popular around the world—but nowhere is it part of the culinary culture more than India, and particularly Mumbai. In vibrant, densely populated cities, eating on the streets is common, and a great way to experience high-quality, creative foods at affordable prices. In this class, we’ll walk the streets of Old Delhi’s Chandi Chowk or Mumbai’s Chowpatty Beach and enjoy a few of the delightful flavors and aromas that India has to offer.

On the Menu: Roasted Chickpeas with Chiles & Coconut; Urad Dahl Bada in Sambhar (Dahl Patties/Fritters); Aloo Chaat (Indian-Style Potato Salad); Caulifower & Paneer Frankie (Wraps); Onion Uttapam (Flatbread with Dahl and Rice Batter).
