Farm-to-KITCHEN Cooking Class: Spanish & Creole Flavors

Presented by The Trustees

Variety is the spice of life! Learn how to cook new flavors at The KITCHEN at The Boston Public Market with a seasonal & local twist on the traditional flavors of Spanish and Creole cuisine at our Farm-to-KITCHEN Cooking class with Chef Cleo Bell!

In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market. Guided by Chef Cleo you’ll create an exciting three-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles. In addition to learning a new cooking style, you’ll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

About Chef Cleo Bell

Cleo was born and raised in Washington, DC. She attended McGill University in Montreal and has a BA in Cultural Anthropology. After graduating, she moved back to DC and began working at local restaurants, such as Againn, a British Isles-inspired gastro-pub and Komi, a high-end Mediterranean restaurant. She has spent 2 summers as the Head Chef for the Hog Island National Audubon Society summer camp in Maine, working with local farms to bring fresh food to the Island and to happy campers. Cleo is thrilled to have the opportunity to cook and teach at Boston Public Market, with the whole Market to source from and the whole of Boston to serve.
At first glance, it might seem a strange road from cultural anthropology to cooking, but food and cooking are integral to the expression and transference of culture. As they say: culture begins at the table. By concentrating on serving local, sustainable foods, Cleo hopes to elevate the experience of the diner and to make a positive impact on the local food community.

About The Trustees and The KITCHEN

As one of the largest owners of agricultural land and the premier steward of the cultural and natural landscape of Massachusetts, The Trustees extends its leadership to transform the local food system by connecting residents and visitors back to the land and sharing the Commonwealth’s collective agrarian heritage through innovative retail and educational experiences at the Boston Public Market in the heart of downtown Boston.

The KITCHEN is a community gathering place, managed by The Trustees, that is restoring the craft of seasonal cooking in Massachusetts, New England, and beyond through hands-on classes and educational experiences that celebrate the farmers and artisans of this region. Partnered with the Boston Public Market, The KITCHEN embraces a whole-food approach to eating and promotes cooking as an essential cornerstone of a sustainable food system.
