… “The new shop also includes a cooking classroom complete with a kitchen. Classes are slated to begin on Wednesday, Nov. 18 and include topics such as “Host a Holiday Party Like a Pro,” “DIY Edible Holiday Gifts,” “P, B & J is so Yesterday! Healthy Kids’ Lunches” and “From Scales to Skillet: Learning to Cook Fish.” Attendance fees range from $25-$40 per class.

Valko is particularly excited about the flour and polenta grinding stations, as well as the new chocolate peanut butter grinder. She pointed to the black-and-white landscape photos wrapping the deli, which were taken by Idaho Conservation League artist in residence Peter Lovera.

Large-scale work by local photographer and food writer Guy Hand are also featured—printed on canvas—throughout the store, profiling area food producers like Rollingstone Chevre, Cinder Wines, Acme Bakeshop, Peaceful Belly Farm and Purple Sage Farms.

“Our producers are so excited to increase their supply to us,” Valko said. “Take Mary [Cogswell], at Wildflour Bakery. We just doubled our orders to her.”

The Co-op will celebrate its grand opening Friday, Nov. 13-Sunday, Nov. 15, which will include samples and wine tastings as well as a raffle for a handful of gift baskets. The store will be open every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.”
