Food & wine news, upcoming events around Sonoma


Shed opens with programs, movie, supper

Shed, a cafe, marketplace and events center located under one roof, is scheduled to open this week at 25 North St. in downtown Healdsburg.

Dry Creek Valley residents Cindy Daniel and Doug Lipton built the 9,800-square-foot building as a celebration of the land and the people who grow our food.

At Shed, the couple plans to keep alive the spirit of an old-fashioned grange hall with an array of Sunday suppers, environmental films and workshops.

Here is the schedule of events through April:

Vegetarian cooking expert Deborah Madison will talk about her new cookbook, "Vegetable Literacy," with food writer Michele Anna Jordan at 2 p.m. Saturday. In her new book, Madison draws on her deep knowledge of cooking, gardening and botany to reveal the surprising relationships between vegetables, edible flowers and herbs within the same botanical families. The talk will be followed by recipe samplings and book signing. Tickets are $15.

A screening of the documentary, "Queen of the Sun, What are the Bees Telling Us?" at 7 p.m. April 25. $10.

Introduction to biodynamic beekeeping with Michael Thiele, 10 a.m. April 27. $30.

The first Sunday Supper with the Bernier Farm Family, 7 p.m. April 28. $40.
