    Evolution of the Merrimack River: From Ice Age to Industrial Age
    When
    May 21, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    Location
    6 Plum Island Turnpike, Newburyport, MA 01950, USA
    Description

    Join us as John Macone presents the fascinating story of the Merrimack River’s evolution. This interactive slideshow looks at the dynamic forces that have created and changed the river; along the way, you’ll learn something new about the Merrimack. The program explores the forces that changed the river from its turbulent emergence from the Ice Age 14,000 years ago to its vital role as a food supply, highway and industrial power source for humans - and finally, the ongoing efforts to return it to a clean and healthy watershed.

    At the conclusion, members of the Alliance of Climate & Environmental Stewards (ACES) will join John to facilitate a Q & A dialogue about opportunities to contribute to these efforts.

    John Macone is Acting Director and Outreach Specialist for the Merrimack River Watershed Council, former editor of the Daily News of Newburyport, and co-author of the book “Plum Island and Salis-bury Memories”.

    This program will take place at the Parker River NWR Visitor Center, located at 6 Plum Island Turnpike, Newburyport, MA.

    Description

    We are pleased to announce a partnership with Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street as of September 2018. This is a demonstration-based iteration of The Middle Eastern Pantry.

    Class Description:

    Milk Street travels the world learning how people put dinner on the table for flavorful weeknight meals, and at the center of it all are condiments, spices, oils and vinegars. By helping you create your own powerful pantry, you can literally change your cooking overnight. But it can be daunting to buy jars and bottles of things you are not sure how to use. We're here to demystify our favorite pantry staples from around the world and help you learn to reach for them often and with confidence. We're going to look at the staples that allow us to make Middle Eastern food any night of the week: tahini, pomegranate molasses, za'atar and sumac. In class, you will get to sample several varieties of each and learn to use them in multiple recipes.

    Recipes include:

    Fatteh - Pita and Chickpea Salad with Yogurt and Mint

    Lamb Burgers with Tahini-Yogurt Sauce

    Lentils with Chard and Pomegranate Molasses

    Turkish Onion and Parsley Salad

    Tahini Almond Cookies
     
    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares three dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes. Most classes can be made Gluten-Free if requested in advance. Please notify us of any food restrictions or allergies in advance by emailing info@portplums.com.

    Cooking Class: Rediscovering Italian Classics
    We are pleased to announce a partnership with Milk Street as of September 2018. This is a demonstration-based iteration of Rediscovering Italian Classics.
    Doors open at 6:15pm, class begins promptly at 6:30pm and runs until approximately 8:30pm. Port Plums 50 Water Street Suites 402 & 403, Newburyport, MA. (P) 978-462-7700

    Class Description:

    This demonstration-based class is an ode to three great Italian dishes — polenta, risotto and pesto — and the traditional way to make each. We'll make pesto from mountains of basil and a whisper of garlic; polenta from just cornmeal, salt and pepper and without stirring; and brilliantly colored saffron risotto that, again, contains fewer ingredients and requires less work than we thought was needed.

    The key to this class is technique, and we will discuss the very few, but very important, steps to make each dish. There are no tricks or gimmicks in this food; just tradition.

    In class we will explore the three base recipes, and beyond. In addition to saffron risotto, pesto, and soft polenta, we will explore three different vegetable broths from scratch, two additional variations of the risotto; turn leftover risotto into arancini (fried rice-cheese balls), and make a classic tomato-anchovy sauce to ladle over soft, hot polenta.

    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares several dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes.
