Join us this Saturday, May 13th, for a lively demonstration by a local dietitian and Ayurvedic practitioner, Sapna Punjabi-Gupta. This demonstration marks the second of our Market to Kitchen Chef Demo series.
Sapna Punjabi-Gupta will teach participants how to create a vibrant sprout salad that is beautiful, will be enjoyed by the entire family, and it’s loaded with many nutritious benefits. During her presentation Sapna will teach a combination of the wisdom of Ayurveda, an ancient Vedic science of holistic healing, and western evidence of nutritional science. The demonstration will include instructions for growing moong beans sprouts in the home kitchen, plus a salad assembling how-to that focuses on the use of local, seasonal ingredients.
Sapna will also teach about her love for spices and how she uses them mindfully in everyday meals. The demonstration will begin at 10:00am and will take place in the greenspace next to the market pavilion, beneath the cover of blue Coppell Farmers Market canopies.
