‘Getting to Know Buckwheat & Millet’

Event organizer: Good Tern Co-op
Event Date & Time: January 15, 2020 5:30 pm

ROCKLAND — At 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 15 the Good Tern Co-op will host a lecture-demo by Abi Morrison on cooking for health. The talk is free and open to the public. Please register by phone at 207-594-8822 or sign up in the store.


The event, which is the first of a winter cooking series, will cover uses of buckwheat and millet for savory dishes and simple desserts. Like rice, these foods are nutritious grains, although less well-known. The class will teach how to prepare porridge, a polenta and a hearty mushroom kasha. The Co-op is located at 750 Main St. in Rockland’s north end.


Abi practices Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs at The Center for Health and Healing in Rockland and believes appropriate diet is fundamental to health. She will explain about the energetic properties of these grains from the Oriental point of view.
