Tuesday, October 21st
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Cooking Classroom, $25 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Outdoor temperatures are falling, which is the perfect time to get the oven temperatures rising. A delicious, comforting cake, pie or crumble can warm the house, the tummy and many a gathering. We’ll focus in particular in this class on the wonderful fruits of Fall and the many different ways to use them in desserts. We’ll go over how to select great fruit for baking, how to make a curd, how to candy nuts/seeds, how to poach fruit and how to create a great crust for a galette (pie’s less fussy cousin). Dinner will not be served during this class, but you will take home lots of desserts, so please plan accordingly. This class is vegetarian friendly, with hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

In this class, we’ll delve into apple history to discover the true story behind their appearance in North America, taste many different varieties of apple and discuss how to pick the best apple for each dish, and mash, braise, roast and shred them into flavorful fall dishes that are sure to please.
