Cooking With Jessa

second wind-cookingJessa Fowler is the Local Foods Coordinator at the Highland Center in Monterey, and this month she teamed up with Kathy Solomon, Community Programs Director for Highland County’s Second Wind, to present “Soup’s On,” a cooking demonstration showing how to prepare tasty soup out of basic pantry ingredients.

Everyone participated in the preparation and then enjoyed the soup for lunch along with salad and bread and great conversation.   Jessa is a former fellow at the Allegheny Mountain School and is currently working with the students at Highland School, planting a garden and renovating a greenhouse.

Second Wind looks forward to teaming up with Jessa again for another cooking show.
