This class will be taught by Chef Jeremy. Author George RR Martin does such an amazing job elaborating the feasts in his series A Song of Fire and Ice, with detailed descriptions of dishes both common and exotic. Food plays such an important role in the popular series that we thought we’d bring you a few of the most memorable offerings from the books in person. Join us for a decadent feast of epic proportions as we learn a little about what might have taken place in a medieval kitchen. While we may not do 77 courses, you are sure to have a delicious and memorable experience. This class has gluten free options available upon request and hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

·         Mulled Apple Cider

·         Seared Lamb with Pork Cracklings and Roasted Cherry Tomato Salad

·         Fish Stew with Potatoes, Onions and Salt Pork, served in a Sourdough Boule

·         Whole Roasted Capon with Root Vegetables and Herbed Butter

·         Lemon Cakes with Chantilly Cream and Raspberries

 

Pre-registration for classes and select events required. See class description for specific instructions. Registration required no later than 48 hours prior to the class date. Call 612-927-8141, visit our customer service desk, or register online to pre-register. Classes and events are subject to change or cancellation. If you cannot attend your class, you must call Whole Foods Market Lake Calhoun and cancel at least 48 hours in advance. You will receive classroom credit for the amount of the class to be used no later than three months from the date of the class that you registered for.

We are TWO YEARS OLD this month! THANK YOU to all of our customers who have shopped with us in the past two years.

We are so grateful to be part of the Edina community and are honored that you have selected us for your shopping needs time and time again. Your continued support and suggestions have helped us grow within the community, and also helped us raise almost $40,000 for the Edina community and surrounding areas!  We look forward to continuing to support your needs and the community’s needs for years to come!

Join us on Friday, April 18, to celebrate with us.  We have some fun things planned throughout the day to thank all of you for shopping with us the past two years – prize drawings, giveaways, samples, birthday cake and a special performance by local musicians Tim Jarvis and Javier Trejo from 11am–2pm!
