PRINCESS ANNE — University of Maryland Eastern Shore Extension will offer an online cooking class to help growers meet an increasing demand for specialty crops and to educate consumers on their nutritional value and how to enjoy them.
UMES Extension is offering an Asian vegetable online cooking class Aug. 28 and an on-site workshop for growers and gardening enthusiasts Aug. 21. Both begin at 10 a.m. and are free, but require advance registration online. The workshop will be held on the UMES Farm located on College Backbone Road near the Food Science and Technology building.
“These vegetables are rich in nutrients and are perfect for crop diversification at small farms,” Dr. Naveen Kumar Dixit, an assistant professor of horticulture and UMES Extension specialist, said in a prepared statement.
