Dad's Favorite Dishes ($20)

August 18, 7:00 - 9:00pm

Chef Nancy’s dad grew up in Sabetha, Kansas with pigs and chickens and cherry trees, and a mom who gardened, canned and cooked. We’ll celebrate those days and these days with a great menu of Dad’s favorites. We’ll begin with a light starter of celery and radishes with Blue Cheese Dip; then on to Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Perfect Summer Potato Salad. For the perfect end to class you’ll enjoy fabulous Cherry Pie with Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. This is the food that memories are made of.

Do you find yourself dividing up your list of groceries by which store you’re going to buy them? You’re not alone! According to a recent study, the average co-op shopper is regularly visiting over three stores. This research combined with our own conversations with Owners and shoppers has helped us realize that there’s an opportunity for The Merc to offer more choices and better serve the whole community. Affordability is a key issue in the healthy, local and organic food movement and we are addressing it head on with our product selection.Click here to read on!
