On Sunday April 7th, Val Gerdes, of Whistlestop Market, Tin Roof Pizza and the DFR Room took time out of her beyond busy schedule to teach us a few “chef tricks” on how to use food scraps in cooking.

It started with raw potato skins and ended with an amazing meal, all in attendance were sent home with, courtesy of Whistlestop Market. We arrived with a jar to bring caramel home with and left with potato skin appetizers, chicken and dumplings, apple crisp and homemade caramel.

Thank you Whistlestop Market for feeding us! The class was free and we all donated money to the Cedar Mountain Community Center, at the request of Val.

The Community Center looks amazing. Volunteers have been working hard to get it ready for
another year of community gatherings, potlucks and rentals.
