HIGH DESERT TEST KITCHEN MONTHLY DINNER MAY 15

For many folks in Morongo Basin exploring the Mojave Desert is a favorite pastime. Now how about exploring our desert from a culinary perspective? Reporter Mike Lipsitz explains …
The High Desert Test Kitchen is an informal monthly dinner gathering organized by artist Sarah Witt. This month’s dinner is at 7 p.m. May 15 at the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center, 65336 Winters Road off Border in Joshua Tree. Bring something to share that is either made with or inspired by a different featured native ingredient each month. May’s ingredient is the Yucca, any variety and any part … the roots or stems, shoots or fruits, and celebrate this versatile native food. This is your opportunity to explore the Mojave from a culinary perspective. The High Desert Test Kitchen naturally intersects with foraging practices and Native American traditions, and inevitably ignites debate over the relationship of man to nature. Changing minds? Maybe. Changing taste buds? Most probably. Reporting for Z107.7 News, this is Mike Lipsitz.
