Linda Perez of L&M Grass-Fed Beef will kick-off Sandy Oak Olive Orchard’s first Locavore Cooking Class, part of a new series that highlights area farmers and producers discussing their products. Perez’s class will be 6:30-9:30 p.m. Sept. 30.
A full slate of guest presenters will headline the series, says Saundra Winokur, owner of the Sandy Oaks near Elmendorf. The list is currently being compiled, and will be released soon. “We’re really excited about this series. It’s going to fun especially because we’ll be promoting people working locally,” she said.
This evening series will combine the expertise of South Texas producers of sustainable agricultural comestibles with demonstration of creative recipes featuring their fresh locally produced foodstuffs.
Perez’ background in education, nutrition and public health, and her years of experience working and living in African countries led to the ranching philosophy she has practiced over the last 17 years here in South Texas.
Dinner with two glasses of wine (or beer) is included in this evening class. You’ll also be able to sample preparations that use Perez’s L&M Grass-Fed Beef. Class size is limited, fee is $45 per person. Payment is required to secure your reservation. Call 210-621-0044.
