Ithaca photographer and videographer Shira Evergreen, founder and Director at Uplifted Ithaca, created this video for Laura Nelkin, a local knitwear designer who had a virtual retreat for knitters from around the country. Nelkin decided to make a cooking show part of the retreat with a recipe featuring many locally sourced ingredients. This recipe is polenta cakes with a roasted butternut and red onion topping—a meal that is tasty, wholesome, and adaptable! You can find Nelkin’s work at www.nelkindesigns.com.
