UWindsor executive chef Paolo Vasapolli will demonstrate creative and delicious uses for microgreens at an urban farm store in Kingsville on Friday, March 19.
“I am a huge supporter of local and farms,” he notes. “They asked me if I could help promote the different applications and versatility of using microgreens for their grand opening.”
Ortaliza grows the vegetables — harvested just a few days after they germinate — indoors, using no soil or natural light to maintain a controlled environment.
Vasapolli notes they pack a nutritional punch.
“Microgreens provide lots of health benefits: antioxidants, fibre, potassium, vitamins, and boosts to immune systems and bones,” he says.
His presentation begins at 10:30 a.m. in the store, located at 25 Main St. West, Unit 1, Kingsville.
