The fun kicks off at 6 PM CT on Zoom, and you can purchase a copy through the U of M Press partner bookseller, Excelsior Bay Books.


Want to cook with us this summer?

Join us for our very first Bare Bones Cooking Class starting June 21!

In this all-levels class, you learn how to turn farmer’s market baskets into tasty, tasty meals.

It will consist of instructional videos and optional homework, a weekly Zoom call, and support in developing your very own recipe book and cooking style – all within a community of fellow creators.

More details coming soon — for now, you can book your spot in advance here on our interest form.
