What you'll do

We'll meet at my home in Mapleton Fall Creek, then we'll walk to Goose the Market or travel to a local farmers market where we'll shop for a variety of seasonal ingredients, looking for some of the most unusual and tasty ingredients produced on local farms. Then we'll return to my well-stocked home kitchen where we'll chat, learn new techniques, hone basic home cooking skills, and prepare a delicious lunch that we'll share in the house or on my garden patio. We'll drink wine, share cooking stories, chat about the local food and spirits scene, and definitely eat to our fill. Come curious, come ready to cook, and above all come hungry!

Terry

Having grown up in my grandmothers' kitchens, I have always enjoyed cooking, experimenting with new recipes and flavors, and welcoming friends into my home for great meals. Since 2000, I have been a freelance food writer at a number of local publications, and I have enjoyed connecting locals and visitors with the best food Indiana has to offer. I love talking about food and cooking, and I get no greater joy than from sharing my kitchen knowledge and skills so that others can cook the best food in their own home kitchens for their family and friends.

Where you'll be

Depending on the guests' interest, we'll keep it simple by strolling to Goose the Market to scour the shelves and cases for some of Indy's most hard-to-find gourmet ingredients. Or we'll go to a local farmers market to see what's being harvested. Or, for the most adventurous, we'll visit a local international market and choose some more exotic ingredients for a lunch recipe we'll research along the way.
