Juanita's First Thursday Creations - Sampling

June 4, 2015 - 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Potsdam Co-op - 24 Elm St.

On June 4th the Potsdam Food Co-op will feature Mediterranean Baked Bulgur during Juanita's 1st Thursday Creations from 3:30 – 5:30pm. This easily prepared vegetarian dish is delicately flavored with summer's fresh dill, along with feta cheese, tomatoes, and broccoli. Bulgur is a whole grain cereal made from the groats of several different wheat species. Common in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes, bulgur is used in pilafs, soups, bakery items, and other recipes. High in protein and fiber, this healthy grain also contains iron, manganese, magnesium, niacin, Vitamin B6, and folate, while containing no cholesterol. Easy to prepare, this hearty recipe is just as easy to enjoy!

After sampling Juanita's creation you are invited to join Shopping with Rosie between 4:30 and 5:00pm for a personalized tour of the Co-op where you can see how the bulk bins work, or find out how to order through the Buying Club for deeper discounts. You can also see the Bakery and chat with staff. Then at 5pm you will have the opportunity to talk with store manager Eric Jesner for Co-op Q&A with the GM. For more information please call 265-4630.
