Title: Cooking: “Traditional Sodas”

Description: Come and join us for a four hour class learning traditional soda making techniques using foraged ingredients. Students will participate in a nature walk on the Burritt trails with instructor Lindsey Boothe to learn to identify the various wild plants that can be used in the kitchen. They will then create traditional sodas such as switchel, haymaker’s punch, sarsaparilla, birch beer, and ginger beer. Additionally, students will create an heirloom gingerbug to take and use at home indefinitely. Each student will leave with 3-4 bottles of traditional soda and a ginger bug.

Instructor: Lindsey Boothe is a lifelong resident of Appalachia and has been a traditional spoon carver for most of her adult life. “I have a deep passion for my Appalachian heritage and for the people here. A lot of that has to do with the strong communities you’ll find throughout the region. I am working to bring those back.” In addition to  spoon carving, Lindsey loves to prepare traditional Appalachian foods for her family and friends. After leaving her home state of West Virginia and moving to Madison in 2020, she has become involved in several community initiatives involving traditional crafting and cooking. You can almost always find Lindsey working in her wood shop, enjoying time with her young family, or creating something delicious in her kitchen.
